'Tainted' Supplement Makers May Face Prosecution: FDA
Date:12/16/2010

astonished at the unfortunate growth of this particular class of products, which are intentionally spiked," Israelsen added. "These are illegal products marketed by people who work in the shadows. They are difficult to find but we are committed to working with FDA to find them and drive them out of our industry and out of the U.S."

Legitimate dietary supplements are regulated under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994. They do not have to be approved by the FDA before reaching consumers, but manufacturers are expected to ensure standards.
