GNC SELLING STIMULANT LAXATIVE PRODUCTS WITH LABEL WARNINGS; the labels are being used nationwide on GNC-marketed products in response to a recently-issued emergency rule in California, General Nutrition said. The California Department of Health Services (CDHS) is requiring that herb teas and dietary supplements containing aloe, buckthorn, cascara, frangula, rhubarb root or senna -- all of which contain the stimulant laxative chemicals anthraquinones -- bear a label warning statement specifying how and when to use the product.
