NEW EUROPE (Reuters) – Friday said the US Food & Drug Administration said there were chrysotile fibers, a type of asbestos, confirming test results that revealed the company earlier Friday Friday.
In an e-mail statement, the FDA said that it insists on the quality of its testing and its results, and that it is not aware of any adverse events associated with exposure to the affected product, but recommended that consumers stop to use powder from that batch.
