Supplement advertising bill

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Legislation that would allow the same claims permitted in dietary supplement product labeling to appear in consumer advertising introduced by Sen. Michael Crapo (R-Idaho) Oct. 19. The Dietary Supplement Fairness in Labeling and Advertising Act (S 1749) is similar to the bill Crapo introduced last session while a member of the House (1"The Tan Sheet" Oct. 5, 1998, p. 8). The new version, however, also would make FDA rescind its April 29 proposed rule on what constitutes an acceptable structure/function claim. In floor comments made when introducing the bill, Crapo stated that, with the proposal, FDA was "asserting responsibilities beyond congressional intent." The bill has been referred to the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions Committee
