Imported Supplements Can Be Dangerous, FDA Warns
On October 15, 2015, the FDA warned consumers that some supplements sold at nontraditional places, such as ethnic or international stores, flea markets, swap meets, as well as online, are often imported from other countries, and some can potentially be harmful. The agency noted that health scammers often target people who prefer to shop at nontraditional places, especially those who have limited English proficiency and limited access to health care services and information.
