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:

"The vast majority of the dietary supplement consuming public - those 150 million-plus Americans who regularly take vitamins, minerals herbal products and even sports supplements - can do so with confidence in their safety. The existing regulatory framework for dietary supplements already requires that new ingredients receive prior approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The law also requires that supplement manufacturers have good manufacturing practices in place at their facilities to ensure products meet standards for purity and quality and are free of contaminants. In other words, what's on the label - nothing more and nothing less - is what's in the product.

"But even though the vast majority of manufacturers are playing by the rules, there are bad actors who are endangering the public, and tarnishing the industry. 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
