Dietary Supplement Industry Commends FDA's Actions to Eliminate Drugs Masquerading as Supplements

Agreeing that this issue is a high concern, the industry trade associations each are reminding their own member companies—and the entire supplement industry—of the responsibility to remain vigilant in their monitoring of the full supply chain and selection of ingredient suppliers; to review manufacturing and quality assurance activities to ensure the legality, quality and safety of products, particularly those most vulnerable to potential adulteration; and to make use of the new tools FDA has made available to industry to report any suspected tainted supplement ingredients or finished products.  

Further, this industry coalition supports the agency's efforts to alert consumers to areas of potential concern and provide tips for selection of supplements.  Regardless of what laws are in place, criminals will try to find ways to break those laws; consequently, consumers also play an important role in protecting their health and should remember to buy from legitimate companies and sources with strong reputations; and to not purchase products with claims that sound too good to be true or suggest drug-like effects when they are marketed as supplements.  Consumers also should be wary of products that boast they are of limited availability, only available for a short time, or are "barely legal," as these claims may indicate there already may be legitimate concerns about their safety.
