New taken steps by FDA to protect consumers from unlawful ingredients in dietary supplements

FDA claims that there are some companies who knowingly distribute and sell dangerous or otherwise illegal products that put consumers at risk, and FDA vows not to allow these companies to compromise the health of people. The FDA is launching a new tool to quickly alert the public when they become aware of ingredients that appear to be unlawfully marketed in dietary supplements. This Dietary Supplement Ingredient Advisory List will be housed on the FDA website. Ingredients will be added to the List following an initial FDA assessment indicating the ingredient may not lawfully be in dietary supplements. FDA states that “As the dietary supplement marketplace has grown, the introduction of new ingredients often raises complex questions involving science, policy, and the law.” Eleven companies received warning letters, FDA is ready to take enforcement action without further notice if the companies do not immediately cease distribution of the products. @ https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm636132.htm?utm_campaign=041619_PR_FDA%20takes%20new%20steps%20to%20protect%20consumers%20in%20dietary%20supplements%20arena&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm636132.htm?utm_campaign=041619_PR_FDA%20takes%20new%20steps%20to%20protect%20consumers%20in%20dietary%20supplements%20arena&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
