The FDA has recently sent out a warning
on April 16, 2015 regarding a fake, counterfeit version of Botox circling around that eager consumers should be
aware of. The FDA has deemed these counterfeit versions as “unsafe and should not be used.”
How to Spot Counterfeit Botox
The real, actual Botox (100 units/vial) used by certified doctors is manufactured by Allergan, which has been
approved for use by the FDA. Counterfeit products can be spotted one of these 3 ways:
- The counterfeit vial does not feature the lot number.
- The counterfeit vial displays the active ingredient as “Botulinum Toxin Type A” instead of “OnabotulinumtoxinA”
- The counterfeit outer carton does not have any entries next to the LOT: MFG: or EXP: notes.
