The article gets some things wrong, such as:

That is consistent with Human Microbes online advertising, which the FDA letter states is misleading

But the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a stark warning against Human Microbes, citing that they make false claims that could harm consumers.

Nowhere in the FDA letter does it say "mislead" or "harm" or "false".

Things like this are why the Daily Mail is not considered a reputable news source. Some parts of it also read like an advertisement for the FMT-alternative pharma drugs.
