Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

FDA and FTC routinely initiate enforcement actions, including Untitled Letters, Warning Letters, Recalls, etc., against dietary supplement makers who misbrand their products by violating FDA advertising and promotion regulations, e.g., by claiming the product can treat, cure, prevent, mitigate or diagnose disease. Sometimes the Department of Justice gets involved and prosecutes firms on behalf of these agencies for violations. Such prosecutions often involve lawsuits against individuals running the companies, and can lead to Consent Decrees for the companies and their owners and responsible corporate officers. These threats can be avoided with proper review of promotional materials and by training and educating staff.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Does total weight include excipients for proprietary blends and any overages added?
  2. Say one of the ingredients has 80% maltodextrin, and is present at 5% weight of supplement, thus maltodextrin is at 4% of finished supplement, would this be listed on ingredient listing?
