Kim Kardashian West received a warning from the Food and Drug Administration after promoting a morning sickness drug, for which she serves as a paid spokeswoman, on her Instagram account.
On Aug. 11, the FDA released a letter requesting that the reality star, 34, remove the social media post from July, in which the FDA claims the pregnant mom-of-one misbranded the product — Diclegis — by failing to mention risks associated with the product.

"The social media post is misleading because it presents various efficacy claims for
Diclegis, but fails to communicate any risk information," the letter states.
"The social media post, however, entirely omits all risk information... By omitting the risks associated with Diclegis, the social media post misleadingly fails to provide material information about the consequences that may result from the use of the drug and suggests that it is safer than has been demonstrated."
Back in July, she posed for a selfie while holding the bottle, which she captioned, "As you guys know my #morningsickness has been pretty bad. I tried changing things about my lifestyle, like my diet, but nothing helped, so I talked to my doctor. He prescribed me #Diclegis, and I felt a lot better and most importantly, it’s been studied and there was no increased risk to the baby. I’m so excited and happy with my results that I’m partnering with Duchesnay USA to raise awareness about treating morning sickness," along with a link to the controversial medication's site.
Kim must have heeded the warning, as the post in question has since been deleted from her account.
