Abstract

Dietary supplements, including vitamins, minerals, herbs, and amino acids have become increasingly popular with consumers. These products create significant regulatory challenges for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the federal agency charged with supervising the safety of these products. In 1994, Congress enacted the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA), which provides the FDA with limited authority to regulate covered products. In June 2005, just over a decade after the passage of DSHEA, the New York State Task Force on Life & the Law published a comprehensive report dealing with dietary supplement safety entitled "Dietary Supplements: Balancing Consumer Choice Safety."

Keywords: dietary supplements, regulation, food and drug law
