Kim Kardashian West has been the unfortunate recipient of a warning letter from the Food and Drug Administration.

On Tuesday, a letter from the FDA was released asking that the 34-year-old reality star remove an Instagram post from July of her promoting Diclegis, a drug she credited for helping with morning sickness. According to the letter, Kardashian West failed to mention any risks related to the drug.

The FDA took note of the soon-to-be mother of two's inclusion of the drug's web address, but said that it was not sufficient since her post implies that the product is safe and does not carry any risks for the baby.

A portion of Kardashian West's original Instagram post read: "[My doctor] prescribed me #Diclegis, I felt a lot better and most importantly, it's been studied and there was no increased rick 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."

The post has since been deleted from her account.
