Supplement safety shift of onus to industry counters DSHEA, Amway tells commission.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

SUPPLEMENT SAFETY BURDEN OF PROOF SHIFT TO INDUSTRY COUNTERS DSHEA, AMWAY maintains in July 24 comments on the President's Commission on Dietary Supplement Labels draft report. The draft report on dietary supplement labeling and claims issues was released June 24; the comment period on the draft ends Aug. 4 ("The Tan Sheet" June 30, pp. 17-25). The draft report states that "the industry as a whole must fully accept the responsibility for assuring the safety of dietary supplements." Amway's Nutrilite Division responds, however, that "the shifting of onus inherent in this presentation back to industry is counter to the letter of [the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act]....This recommendation from the commission serves the function of altering the letter of the statute."
