Feds raid New City lab

Posted: Updated:

Federal authorities are investigating a clinical testing facility in Rockland County.



Agents were at the AMA Laboratories in New City on Thursday removing boxes and files. Authorities won't say what they are looking for.



One patient, who asked not to be identified, says it was scary to see agents scouring the facility. "I saw another employee from another company, he came out, I asked him 'what's going on?' He says 'I have no idea, all I know is the FBI was here for a good part of the day.'"



AMA's website says it has been conducting efficacy and claims to support testing for skin care, hair care, cosmetics and drug products for over 30 years. An attorney for the company says despite the investigation, AMA Laboratories will continue to operate normally.
