Senators Ask New Attorney General to Stand Against Supplements

By Paul da Costa on May 28, 2015


Many Americans who want to lose weight use dietary supplements.  The Food and Drug Administration, however, has thus far taken little action against manufacturers who include illegal substances in their dietary supplements.  For example, some dietary supplements could contain anabolic steroids, yet are not punished for doing so.  

TheHill.com reported that two senators recently sent a letter to the new Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, urging her to take further action against manufacturers who advertise harmful substances as dietary supplements.  Right now, if the FDA finds out that a manufacturer has mislabeled a dietary supplement, it issues a warning and asks the manufacturer to voluntarily recall the product.  The Senators, however, argue that criminal action against manufacturers is necessary to deter their behavior.  In particular, the Senators claim it is important for consumers to trust manufacturers of dietary supplements and feel safe when ingesting their products.

If you or a loved one was harmed by ingesting a dietary supplement that may have contained an illegal substance, call Paul M. da Costa, Esq. at Snyder & Sarno, LLC to assess whether you have a legal claim against the manufacturer.  Call us today at (973) 274-5200.
