CBD, Nutrition Industry Sound Alarm Over Proposed Dietary Supplements Listing Bill; Could it Be a Slippery Slope to FDA “Preapproval?”
By Steven Hoffman
On April 26, 2022, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL), introduced a bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), S. 4090, the Dietary Supplement Listing Act of 2022. The proposed legislation, according to a statement from Durbin’s office, would require dietary supplement manufacturers to list their products with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known as a mandatory product listing (MPL). In addition, companies would be required to “provide FDA with vital information about their products, including product names, a list of all ingredients, an electronic copy of the label, allergen statements, health and structure/function claims, and more. This information would then be made available to the public,” Durbin’s office said.
