Dietary supplement enforcement

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Language added to Agriculture Appropriations bill by Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) Oct. 25 would provide CFSAN with $1 mil. to "enhance enforcement of requirements under [DSHEA] related to the accuracy of product labeling, and the truthfulness and substantiation of claims." HR 2330 passed the Senate 91-5 with 36 amendments the same day and now is headed for a conference between the two chambers. Introducing the amendment, Hatch noted he and Harkin have become "increasingly alarmed over reports that unsafe or mislabeled dietary supplement products are being marketed." Hatch also expressed concern about the number of teenagers taking performance-enhancing products, adding "it is not clear they fall within the legal definition of dietary supplement"
