For years, supplement manufacturers neglected labeling compliance. Nice design and hard-hitting marketing messages always took precedence. With relatively lax FDA enforcement, few paid the price.
Not any more. The FDA is increasingly vigilant about marketing claims. And it’s not just the FDA who’s on the case … Just recently, the Senate Committee on Aging garnered extensive media coverage for its investigation into what it characterized as a “dangerous and deceitful” nutritional supplement industry.
Labels from dietary supplement products that contained illegal claims.
While FDA enforcement action for non-compliance may start with a seemingly mild slap-on-the-wrist warning letter, the letter requires that you change your labels. And this can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in printing, repackaging, recalls and more.Even worse – you only have 15 days to comply.
And if you don’t revise your labels?Fines and product seizures. Not to mention bad press.
