FDA’s Division of Drug Information in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is excited to present a series of educational webinars targeting the needs of all health care professionals and students, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians. Interact with FDA staff from a variety of divisions and learn more about the FDA and drug regulation!
On Tuesday, November 16, 2021, CDER's Office of Communication, Division of Drug Information (DDI) hosted a webinar titled: FDA Drug Topics: Fraudulent Products – Hidden Ingredients and Unproven Claims in Products Marketed as Dietary Supplements. Products marketed as dietary supplements that contain hidden, harmful ingredients and/or falsely claim to prevent, treat, mitigate, diagnose or cure disease continue to be a public health concern. As the marketplace for dietary supplements has evolved, so has the marketplace for the illegal sale of these adulterated products which contain ingredients ranging from prescription drugs to controlled substances. Furthermore, some companies may prey on vulnerable populations or exploit public health emergencies with unproven claims regarding their dietary supplements. The goal of this presentation is to increase awareness of this public health issue, provide an overview of the steps FDA is taking to protect consumers from fraudulent products marketed as supplements, and provide resources and the means which the public can report issues related to these types of products.
