Save Our Supplements from Prohibition

Bad ideas don't just materialize in Washington. They happen in Albany, too. 

Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York legislature have made a strong commitment to limiting consumer choice by over-regulating businesses and have put a bullseye on the dietary supplement industry.

Governor Hochul just signed into law a bill restricting and prohibiting access to certain dietary supplements, including products like creatine. 

We need all hands on deck, and why I am calling on you to join our petition urging the FDA to uphold the statutory pre-emption of states from imposing laws that are not in line with the federal government.

Failure to act will cause consumers to lose access to products they rely on and could cost some businesses everything. Help stop this prohibition on dietary supplements today.

Thank you,

Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D.

Petition Text

Selling dietary supplements should not be made criminal. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the FDA regulate nutritional supplements under several laws. The FTC has the primary responsibility for claims in advertising. Under the FDA, supplements are regulated under several laws, including the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990 and the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA). DSHEA grants the FDA the power to test products on the market and initiate recalls. Both agencies have an extensive history of taking enforcement action against manufacturers, ad agencies, distributors, retailers, catalog companies, and others involved in deceptive practices. 

Additionally, according to the FDA, the chief regulator of dietary supplements, there is no correlation between any dietary supplements and eating disorders. If there were, the FDA would be required to remove the product from the market. The requirements in New York's new law do not follow the statutory requirements of 21 CFR 101.93, which established which claims are prohibited/restricted from interstate commerce by the FDA.

More than 3 in 4 Americans trust vitamins and minerals to be a part of their daily health routine. Yet, New York's new law disrupts their health and wellness routines. 

Join NPA's fight against New York's radical law today.
