 FDA Draft Guidance

 Overview

 


 

Treat Weight Loss Claims for
Dietary Supplements as Disease Claims

 

Petition Overview

Sample Letter

Original Citizen Petition



FDA Regulatory Action
(B-6 Regulated as a "Drug")

 

Overview

Petition




Sen. Dick Durbin's bill which supposedly protects consumers will only impose more FDA control over dietary-supplement mfgs., their marketing, and consumer access to supplements.



 New NDI requirements would put most herbal products out of business; would have to sell out to drug companies; only drug companies could afford to do this, and then market as drugs with huge profit margin to justify testing costs. Anticipated costs aren't mentioned.


This is a draft industry guidance and is not final nor a proposed regulation but if enforced would greatly affect current DSHEA law concerning liquid dietary supplements and conventional beverages in a negative way. 


Act on this poorly titled, self-serving, pharmaceutical industry "Citizen Petition" which would reclassify all dietary-supplement weight-loss claims as disease claims.






The B-6 regulation of classifying this dietary supplement form as a "drug" is still tentative and not yet final. Pressure your representatives to rescind this regulatory action of banning vitamins by reclassifying them as "drugs."
