Tainted Products Marketed as Supplements Widget
A widget is a portable application that displays featured content directly on a web page. Webmasters can embed this widget into their site to increase overall awareness about this important topic (check with your web hosting provider to see if they allow third party widgets to be installed). Once you’ve added FDA’s widget, there’s no technical maintenance—FDA will automatically provide updates to content displayed on the widget.
The RSS feed, like the widget, includes updated content published on FDA’s website. RSS, which stands for Really Simple Syndication, is usually used for news and blog websites. By subscribing to FDA’s RSS feed, organizations and bloggers can receive updates automatically and put together their own customized lists of news and information. An RSS news reader (a special software program) is required to pick up the content in the RSS feed.
Both the widget and the RSS feed contain alerts, health information, and FDA actions on tainted products marketed as dietary supplements for weight loss, sexual enhancement, and body building.
