Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments I wish to comment on the possible ammendment of DSHEA in reguards to the safety of ephedera and the use of warning lables. I am concerned that FDA has only just begun to initiate aggressive enforcement actions under DSHEA, yet is calling for suggestions for increased legislative authority in order to better regulate the supplement industry. Shouldn't you first give these recent efforts a chance to work, and perhaps even issue good manufacturing practices for supplemnts, before calling for new laws? I belive the agency can regulate ephedra without dismantling DSHEA.
