Danger supplement warning

27th September 2010

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has sent out a warning that a healthy living supplement could be extremely dangerous if ingested.


The FSA said the 'Miracle Mineral Supplement' contains 28% sodium chlorite, which turns into bleach if it comes into contact with citric acid.

The watchdog warned that people could suffer side effects such as diarrhoea and vomiting by taking the supplement, and if taken in the wrong way it could cause the respiratory system to fail.

The FSA said it intended to find all the companies offering the product for sale in the UK.

The supplement is marketed as offering benefits from conditions such as H1N1, hepatitis and HIV.

The Food and Drugs Agency in America has already warned consumers about the supplement.

However, some websites in the UK are still selling the supplement for around £33.

A spokesman for the FSA said: "People should not take Miracle Mineral Supplement or Miracle Mineral Solution. This product is equivalent to industrial-strength bleach."

"The agency is working with local authorities across the UK to stop this product being sold. If anyone finds this product on sale please get in touch with your local authority trading standards department as soon as possible."
