Metamucil Singles manufacture

It is obvious that Metamucil has stopped producing the sugar free Singles Packets, it is sold out world wide and hasn't been made in 9 months, but they still promote it. They also say a legal - marketing statement about it that never changes. Why won't they say it is not being made? Was there something wrong with the product? ## I really don't know anything about it, since it isn't a prescription product. That means they aren't required to report anything on it to the FDA, such as if they decide to stop manufacturing it or etc. Have you tried contacting the company to ask? There is a website with a contact form at metamucil.com Learn more Metamucil details here.
