I was referring Cam to the time when I ordered the products from their website as I could not found their products anywhere else. There was no statement about the FDA approval on ALN website's description of both Opticen and Results.
In regards to the conjugated linoleum acid, United States' Poison Control Department was the one that claimed that particular ingredient within Opticen to be something that can induce hepatitis.

Pretty standard disclaimer you'll find on any supplement company's site. Read the labels on your tubs of Results and Opticen and I'll guarantee something similar is on there.
As for the CLA: "The United States Food and Drug Administration categorizes CLA as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status for certain food categories, including fluid milk, yogurt, meal replacement shakes, nutritional bars, fruit juices and soy milk. With GRAS status, food companies are able to add CLA to products in these food categories."
You either misunderstood the doctor about it being dangerous, or he was badly misinformed.
