Brett Favre pushing pain cream, but unclear if it's FDA-approved By Josh Katzowitz |

We haven't talked about Brett Favre in a few weeks, so you might be curious as to what he's been up to lately.
Well, he's taken the blame for his acrimonious split from the Packers, he's plugging Yolo-branded paddleboards instead of Wranglers, and he's settling old court cases.
Oh, and now he's apparently become a spokesman for a prescription pain cream product that might or might not be FDA-approved.
As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel explains, the cream is called Rx Pro, and yes, it appears as though Favre is a true believer in the product.
"I can speak volumes on pain and narcotics use," Favre said in a Sirius XM interview about two weeks ago. “[Rx Pro] is a safe way to treat some of your ailments. It even works with cramps, stomach pain ... It's just endless what will happen with this product and this company."
Favre said he put the cream on his ankles, and suddenly the pain dissipated. Now he also doesn't have to deal with cramping calves, something that bothered him during his career. Favre is an investor in the product, and it sounds like the company plans to use Favre in its marketing.
But here's one potential problem. It might not actually be approved by the FDA.

Byron Barrett, the president of the sports medicine unit of World Health Industries [which makes and manufactures RX Pro], said in an interview and follow-up email that the product was safe. He said he believed it was FDA-approved.
