Tell Congress to Stop Bullying Supplement Retailers!

Under the auspices of the Special Committee on Aging, where she is the ranking member, Sen. Claire McCaskill sent letters to over a dozen major retailers, asking them to supply the committee with the retailers’ policies relating to the sale and marketing of adulterated, improperly labeled, or fraudulently marketed supplements, and the reporting of serious adverse events.

The letter intimates that that supplements are unregulated, which is simply untrue—supplements are subject to regulation by both the FDA and the FTC, and must adhere to strict current good manufacturing practices to ensure the safety of the supplements consumers buy.

Write to your senator on the Special Committee on Aging and urge them to halt this bullying of supplement retailers and maintain consumer access to important supplements. Remind them that federal regulators already have the authority to stop deceitful marketing practices. The FDA and FTC should simply do their job and enforce current law.
