FDA Cracks Down on Dietary Supplement Manufacturers


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2014 -- The FDA does not regulate the supplement industry as tightly as it does the pharmaceutical industry, but this does not mean the group does not routinely make surprise inspections on certain supplement manufacturers.

Done in the name of safety and quality control, agents arrive unannounced; they check and cross-check every aspect of the laboratory from creation to quality control. Those who do not meet the standards are quickly shut down and driven out of business.

VitaBreeze, a supplement manufacturer, is not immune to the FDA’s random checks and was recently surprised with a team coming to their lab.

Michelle O'Sullivan, spokesperson www.VitaBreeze.com, had this to say about the group’s arrival and search, "The FDA inspected our lab recently to ensure we were still following all their guidelines. It did cause some delays in production, but the VitaBreeze manufacturing lab continues to be FDA compliant and follows the strict GMP guidelines to ensure the quality of our products."

The surprise inspection has strengthened the resolve of the company to provide the best possible products to their consumers. It has also inspired VitaBreeze to further enhance their consumer safety procedures on products such as their popular joint pain relief supplement.

"An extra step we have implemented is sending off samples from each new batch to an independent, third-party ISO testing lab to ensure the ingredients match what is stated on the Supplement Facts. This is just another way to ensure we deliver the highest quality products possible,” said O’Sullivan.

Such voluntary steps to protect customers are applauded by consumer groups, as third-party ISO testing is not required by the FDA. If you're looking for a high quality joint pain supplement, it's definitely worth taking a look at the VitaBreeze glucosamine chondroitin supplement on Amazon.com.
