S.4090 is a mandatory product listing bill and an attempt by Senator Durbin and the FDA to further intimidate and quash the dietary supplement industry by mandating detailed product listing to the FDA, far beyond the current labeling requirements, with criminal sanctions for noncompliance.
S.4090 is unnecessary in a highly regulated dietary supplement environment that includes: mandatory manufacturer registrations; labeling laws; good manufacturing regulations; and adverse event reporting laws.
S.4090’s detailed requirements are poised to intimidate and overwhelm manufacturers and limit consumer access to many beneficial and safe dietary supplements.
Dietary supplements are regulated as food, considered safe, and account for only 0.1% of adverse events reported to FDA, with national reports showing zero deaths from supplements.
Don’t let the pharmaceutical bias and lobbying interests block our access to dietary supplements. This is a time when we need our nutrients more than ever.
AHPA: Mandatory product listing could restrict access to supplements.
“A mandatory product listing is unnecessary and could harm industry while limiting consumers’ access to safe dietary supplements, writes Michael McGuffin of the American Herbal Products Association in this op-ed.” Michael McGuffin | Mar 02, 2022 Natural Products Insider
ANH-USA Alliance for Natural Health: “This bill creates a lose-lose situation for consumers and supplement companies: if companies don’t comply, they face fines and jail time; if they do comply, companies are orchestrating their own demise by giving the FDA the list it needs to sweep the market of as many as 41,000 supplements that do not comply with the agency’s overreaching (and incomplete) “new supplement” guidance. Supplement companies lose, the economy suffers, and consumers lose access to critical health products. “
