FDA Dietary Supplement, Nutraceutical, VItamin Testing

This manufacturer was being prudent in performing testing and being in compliance with FDA regulations.  On August 4, 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration entered into a Permanent Injunction against 3 Wisconsin Dietary Supplement Manufacturers for failing to follow FDA Regulations.  These Dietary Supplement Manufacturers are The Atrium Inc., Aspen Group Inc. and Nutri-Pak of Wisconsin Inc. The FDA alleges numerous violations of the FDA’s GMP Good Manufacturing Practice regulations including failure to properly identify ingredients, failure to qualify suppliers and failure to properly manufacture and label products. These violations would cause the products to be misbranded and adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic FD&C Act.
