Natural Products Association Issues Statement on New Supplement Safety Campaign

Statement by John Gay, Executive Director and CEO, Natural Products Association

In response to a new campaign launched today by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to educate consumers and rid the marketplace of "rogue" marketers selling steroids as dietary supplements, the Natural Products Association, the oldest and largest trade association representing retailers and manufacturers of dietary supplements and other natural products, issued the following statement:

We appreciate USADA and its partners for targeting these handful of 'rogue' companies that flout the law by marketing illegal steroids and other drugs as dietary supplements. There is much we can do together to help put them out of business.

"At the same time, we must be careful not to needlessly damage the good actors in the industry. Simply putting more laws on the books for the bad guys to continue to ignore is not the answer.

"When laws are being broken, as they are in this case, the solution is to put more cops on the street by i
