ST. LOUIS, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- U.S. marshals seized more than $300,000 of drugs and dietary supplements from General Therapeutics Corp. at the request of federal drug regulators.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said some of the products lacked FDA approval and all were maintained under grossly unsanitary conditions, the FDA said Thursday in a news release.

The seized products included an antifungal called NC Solution, which has not been recognized by the FDA as "safe and effective," the agency said.

FDA inspectors alleges the company was manufacturing drugs and dietary supplements under unsanitary conditions, including insects and rodent filth on and around manufacturing equipment.
