The New York State Attorney General’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.
The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that – on average - four out of five products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels. The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies. In total only 21% of store brand herbal supplements contained plants listed on the labels.
“For nearly four decades we’ve worked closely with healthcare practitioners around the globe to educate patients and reinforce just how critical it is for consumers to purchase their supplementation through licensed healthcare providers,” said Denis DeLuca, President of Biotics Research. “And this latest action by the New York Attorney General’s office is just yet another example that underscores this.”
Please don't buy 'bargain' vitamins from big chain mass producing markets. Its just not safe. We practice functional medicine and have access to pharmaceutical grade supplements from FDA approved labs.
