WARNING: "Liquid Hope" by Functional Formularies

URGENT REVISION, DECEMBER 1, 2017


When I originally trialed this product, I deemed it safe for me.  In addition, they claim the product to be corn free on the front of the package. It has a 2-year shelf-life; and since I hadn't eaten any for a while, I consumed one of the packages this evening.  Whoa!  Severe corn reaction! This tells me that I am becoming more sensitive to corn derivatives.

  DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO CORN


I have notified the company of my reaction, and will be filing an adverse reaction report with the FDA on Monday.

I recently experienced a severe allergic reaction to this product due to my corn allergy (also includes an allergy to anything derived from corn; e.g. corn-derived ascorbic acid, corn-derived dextrose, etc.). I saved the package, which clearly declares "corn free" on the front of the package. This product is NOT corn free or free from corn-derived ingredients, and can pose a danger to the corn allergy population.
