The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has closed down a branch of the Belo Medical Clinic pharmacy in Muntinlupa City on Monday.

The agency ordered to padlock the pharmacy after they allegedly refused a government inspection and for selling 11 products that are all not registered with the FDA, reported ABS-CBN.

The notice posted outside the pharmacy said that the branch in West Gate, Alabang “is hereby ordered closed and to cease and desist in conducting its business activity as ordered under FDA Case No. 2018-0037 for violation of Section 11 (c) of RA No. 3720, as amended by RA No. 9711.”

FDA made the move after the pharmacy of the Belo Medical Group in Muntinlupa City allegedly sold mislabeled cosmetic products and unregistered drug products.

The agency also conducted a test-buy operation wherein they were able to get a surveillance video that showed a cashier of the said clinic getting a product worth P22,000 (Dh 1,540) from the pharmacy.

The 11 products that the pharmacy was selling that were not registered with the FDA are as follows:

– ZO Medical by Zein Obagi;

– MD Glycogent Exfoliation Accelerator 10% concentration;

– ZO Medical by Zein Obagi Foamacleanse Gentle Foaming Cleanser for all types;

– ZO Medical by Zein Obagi Oclipse Sunscreen/Primer SPF 30 Protection;

– Belo Illuminating Cream Alpha Arbutin+Liquorice;

– Belo Prescriptives Keralyt 2 Cream;

– ZO Medical by Zein ObagiMD Melamix Skin Lightener & Blending Creme Hydroquinone USP 4%;

– ZO Medical by Zein Obagi MD Melanin Skin Bleaching & Correcting Creme Hydroquinone USP 4%;

– Belo Prescriptives Acne Astringent;

– Belo Prescriptives Belo White;

– Belo Prescriptives DLC Peeling Creme; and

– ZO Medical by Zein Obagi MD Cebatrol.

“Hindi dumaan sa registration process ng FDA, so ang ibig sabihin nun, kung hindi siya authorized, hihintayin niya dapat na dumaan doon sa proseso ng FDA, that they will be allowed to sell,” retired Gen. Allen Bantolo, chief of the FDA Regulatory Enforcement Unit, said in an interview with ABS-CBN.

He added that all drugs and cosmetic products should be registered with the FDA to ensure that they are all safe.
