In the wake of attacks on our homeland, Congress in 2002 passed the Bioterrorism Act to give FDA important information it would need to respond quickly to a threatened or actual bioterrorist attack.
Sadly, Senator Braun and Durbin are using their dislike of the dietary supplement industry to misrepresent the industry's excellent safety record. S.4090 severely undermines these carefully crafted protections, which is why I am urging you to write Congress today to let them know you oppose this potentially catastrophic legislation.
We simply can not afford to allow our food supply to be left vulnerable to bioterrorists who could potentially use contaminants to harm Americans. I hope you join NPA's fight against Senator Braun and Durbin's effort to weaken our protections and leave us vulnerable to a potential attack by writing you members of Congress urging their opposition to S.4090.
Don't let Senators Braun and Durbin threaten your access to dietary supplements.
