Dear James Fuller:

This letter concerns your company’s marketing of animal drugs not approved for the treatment of diseases in animals, including but not limited to Cydectin (moxidectin), Cydectin (moxidectin) with iron supplement Blackstrap and Blackstrap. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reviewed your account, “goatandchickenman”, at, and Craigslist at https ://dallas.craigslist .org in August 2022 and determined that you distribute these products on these websites. Claims on your accounts at the listed websites establish that your products Cydectin, Cydectin with Iron Supplement Blackstrap, and “Blackstrap” are drugs under Section 201(g)(1)(B) of the FD&C Act. [21 U.S.C. 321(g)(1)(B)], as these products are intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment or prevention of disease in animals. As explained below, these products are new, unapproved veterinary drugs and the introduction or introduction for delivery of these products in interstate commerce violates the Federal Drug and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).

You can find FD&C and FDA regulations through links on the FDA home page at

The statements quoted above are supplemented by the Craigslist tags used to drive consumers to your listing via internet searches. Examples of labels for consumers looking for products to prevent or treat parasitic infections include: “cydectin” and “vermifuge”.

South Pork Equipment Cydectin and Molasses products are New Animal Drugs, as defined by Section 201(v) of the FD&C Act, [21 U.S.C. § 321(v)], because they are not generally recognized among experts qualified by scientific training and experience to evaluate the safety and efficacy of veterinary drugs as safe and effective for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended or suggested in labeling. To be legally marketed, a new animal drug must have an approved new animal drug application, conditionally approved new animal drug application, or index listing under sections 512, 571, and 572 of the FD&C Act. . [21 U.S.C. §§ 360b, 360ccc, and 360ccc-1]. In addition, the drug product labeling must be consistent with the approved labeling in the application or index listing.

We acknowledge that there is an approved pour-on product for cattle marketed by the applicant under the trade name Cydectin® (moxidectin). It is not clear if what you are selling is the approved product that you have repackaged and relabelled. Either way, the Approved Product is not approved or labeled for use in sheep or goats or for oral administration, all uses listed on the labeling of the products you sell. We also note that on your eBay and Craigslist web pages you have photographs of your Cydectin product alongside the product and FDA-approved Cydectin® (moxidectin) product packaging, which may misleadingly imply that the product you are selling is the approved Cydectin®.

The products you distribute are not approved or listed by the FDA, nor are their labeling consistent with an approval, and therefore the products are not safe within the meaning of section 512(a) of the Act FD&C, [21 U.S.C. § 360b(a)]and tampered with under FD&C Section 501(a)(5) [21 U.S.C. § 351(a)(5)]. The introduction or delivery for entry into interstate commerce of an adulterated drug is prohibited under section 301(a) of the FD&C Act. [21 U.S.C. § 331(a)].


This letter is not intended to be an exhaustive statement of violations that may exist in connection with your product. You are responsible for investigating and determining the causes of any violations and for preventing their repetition or the occurrence of other violations. It is your responsibility to ensure that your business complies with all requirements of federal law, including FDA regulations. This letter informs you of our concerns and gives you the opportunity to respond to them.

If you cannot complete the corrective actions within fifteen (15) business days, indicate the reason for the delay and the time frame within which you will complete the correction. If you think your products are not in
violation of FD&C law, include your reasoning and any supporting information for our consideration.
