Wow. Is this cough syrup or knockout drops?!

AmigaTech

Welcome to the USA before the FDA (and after the DSHEA. Today they just have to say 'it's natural' and the FDA just politely butts out, whatever's in it).

Zicam nose drops claimed to be homeopathic, so as a 'natural' remedy they escaped oversight. As it happened, they contained a fairly virulent dose of a highly controlled medication, and several people lost their sense of smell completely and permanently from side effects that they didn't have to mention "'cause it's herbal".
