FDA Finds Problems at 62% of Supplement Manufacturing Sites in U.S. and Abroad
ConsumerLab.com has obtained results of the FDA's inspections in 2014 of 483 dietary supplement manufacturing facilities, showing that most -- 62% -- received letters indicating noncompliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Manufacturers are required by law to follow cGMPs, but only a small fraction of facilities are inspected by the FDA each year. The results, by manufacturer, are posted on the ConsumerLab.com website (member sign-in required) and include results for manufacturers in the U.S. and abroad, listed by country. Manufacturers which passed inspection without a citation are highlighted in green, while those receiving a letter of noncompliance, known as a Form FDA 483, are highlighted in red.
