Jamu in Yogyakarta

It seems that the Health authorities are doing the rounds in East Java, Central Java, and the Special Administrative Zone of Yogyakarta. The Food and Drug Supervisory Agency (Badan Pengawasan Obat dan Makanan / BPOM) have withdrawn hundreds of herbal medicines from sale in markets throughout Yogyakarta.

The withdrawal from sale is for similar reasons to the one stated earlier. These herbal medicines contained prescription drugs that have serious effects on the heart, liver, kidneys, and blood pressure of those who take them.

Once again it seems you drink jamu at your own risk!
