Former FDA lawyer: DSHEA largely 'a success'

August 23, 2019, Natural Products Insider

Peter Hutt spoke with the Natural Products Insider podcast in the second part of a discussion about the FDA’s role over the decades in regulating dietary supplements and efforts to impose restrictions that were stymied time and again. Mr. Hutt says, “FDA has not done adequate enforcement against [companies that put prescription drug ingredients in dietary supplements]. If I were FDA, I would put a Federal Register notice out saying that starting—pick a number—three or six months from now, we will bring criminal action against any company that is found to have an illegal prescription drug in a dietary supplement. This has gone on too long. It should be stopped.”
