Jordan Food and Drug Administration (JFDA) warned that there has been a large number of messages transmitted recently through various social media platforms about drugs containing unhealthy products, pointing out that this information is not issued by the health authority accredited in Jordan.
The JFDA said that news about “Brufen" containing aluminum foil is old news from 2016, which circulated in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and was refuted by the health authorities at the time.
The JFDA stressed that the circulation of such rumors without obtaining information from official sources has serious repercussions on society, causing panic especially with patients, causing them to stop taking medication or pushing them to modify the dosage of drugs without referring to health care practitioners.
The JFDA routinely tests random samples of drugs in laboratories for drug control to ensure that they adhere to specifications and conditions to ensure their safety.
JFDA warned of such rumors that circulate social media and urged the public to rely on JFDA for official information regarding medicines and medical warnings.
If the public wishes to verify any information regarding the safety of pharmaceuticals or medical supplies registered in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, please contact the JFDA through the following:
