Save Our Supplements and Demand the FDA Withdraw the NDI Draft Guidance!! PDF Print E-mail

In July the FDA issued its Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues (what is called the "NDI Draft Guidance"). The agency issued the guidance, mandated by the food “safety” law passed earlier this year, purportedly to clarify requirements for filing new dietary ingredient (NDI) submissions.

However, the FDA is going way beyond simply clarifying existing requirements. It is attempting to drastically change existing law by saying that finished product manufacturers must make a submission for every product that contains an NDI or whenever a formula is changed, if an NDI is present. If this guidance is not withdrawn and its misinterpretation of law is backed by the FDA's own policy, review and enforcement powers, it would cause major disruption in the dietary supplement market; force a significant number of products off the shelves; and result in revenue losses of over a billion dollars and the unemployment of over 100,000 Americans.

Neither American consumers nor the dietary supplement industry should stand for this unconscionable attempt by the FDA to, via various NDI-related side doors, effectively re-write DSHEA, maim the health-food industry and drastically reduce consumer choice.

That is why Citizens for Health is calling on Congress and the President to demand that the FDA summarily withdraws the NDI Draft Guidance and goes on the record stating that the agency will not, now or ever, review, consider, surveil or engage in enforcement activities according to the re-interpretation of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) evident in its Guidance document but, instead, will honor the law that the American people gave to the FDA (via Congress) to uphold via regulation according to both the spirit, letter, and plain and intended meaning of DSHEA.

California Department of Food & Ag Recalls Organic Pastures Dairy Company Raw Milk Products

Organic Pastures was informed by the California Department of Public Health and California Department of Food and Agriculture that over the course of an eight-week period earlier this year, five people tested positive for E. Coli O157:H7; these five consumers reported drinking raw milk.

It is a common goal of Organic Pastures and the California Department of Public Health to rapidly investigate any linkage between these cases and raw milk. Each month CDFA tests all Organic Pastures’ products for pathogens, in addition Organic Pastures uses a third-party for pathogen testing multiple times per week. All these tests have been negative. It has been reported to us by the California Department of Public Health that as of today all products collected from the ill patients have been negative for E. Coli 0157:H7.

Organic Pastures, in a collaborative effort with the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is diligently working to quickly resolve this investigation. During this time their raw dairy products will not be available for sale. Their USDA Organic Beef, Truly Raw Cheese, and Organic Pastured Eggs will not be affected by this investigation.
