"Since these unregistered food products and food supplements have not gone through evaluation process of the FDA, the agency cannot assure its quality and safety," it said.

According to the Food and Drug Administration Act of 2009, the manufacture, importation, exportation, sale, offering for sale, distribution, transfer, non-consumer use, promotion, advertising or sponsorship of health products without the proper authorization is prohibited, the FDA said.

The FDA warned establishments not to distribute, advertise or sell the said "violative" food products until proper certificates are issued, adding that failure to comply could result in "regulatory sanctions."

Local government units and the Bureau of Customs are ordered to ensure that the said products are not sold and to restrain entry of unregistered products, the agency said.
