Stop Deceiving the Public by Marketing Dangerous Detox Programs

toxic

Target: The manufacturer of Adya Clarity

Goal: Stop marketing harmful toxins to unknowing consumers

Adya Clarity is a “detox” product used in drinking water that was seized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2012 for multiple violations that threaten consumer safety. The non-profit Consumer Wellness Center has just released a consumer health warning for Adya Clarity, which continues to be marketed widely to the public through deceptive webinars that falsely claim the health benefits of the product.

The FDA tested the product and found it to include over 1200ppm aluminum, which far exceeds EPA limits for safe water consumption. The product is made primarily from aluminum sulfate and was imported into the United States originally using the description “battery acid.” The manufacturer of Adya Clarity intentionally did not list aluminum on the label, instead listing beneficial ingredients like magnesium. The product was cited for multiple labeling violations. Despite these violations and known health risks, the manufacturer still recommends the product for internal consumption. The FDA has never approved Adya Clarity despite the manufacturer’s claims the product is “harmonized” with FDA standards.

The claimed “water purification” benefits of Adya Clarity are highly deceptive since the product does not have a filter that can trap the aluminum that has bonded with other particles. Therefore, consumers who drink this liquid ingest high levels of aluminum as well as other minerals. Users of Adya Clarity have reported “black stuff” coming out of their ears and fingernails. The marketing claims for the product are dangerous and deceptive and must be stopped.

PETITION LETTER

Dear manufacturer of Adya Clarity,

The non-profit Consumer Wellness Center has just released a consumer health warning for Adya Clarity, which continues to be marketed widely to the public through deceptive webinars that falsely claim the health benefits of the product.  This petition demands that you stop marketing Adya Clarity as a detox program and stop deceiving and poisoning consumers.

The FDA has never approved your product and your claim that the product is “harmonized” with FDA standards is dangerously deceptive to the public. Your product is made primarily from aluminum sulfate and was originally imported into the United States using the description “battery acid.” To market your product as having “detox” or “water purification” benefits is highly deceptive since the product does not have a filter that can trap the aluminum that has bonded with other particles. Therefore, consumers who drink this liquid ingest high levels of aluminum. Please stop falsely advertising this product and marketing it to uninformed consumers.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
