Any information a manufacturer or distributor provides about cosmetics, drugs, food or dietary supplement products is considered labeling. This includes websites, brochures, flyers, magazine advertisements and radio and television commercials. All labeling must comply with both Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations.
Both the FDA and FTC plan internet surf days designed to uncover web pages that do not comply with regulations. Previous surf days have focused on dietary supplements being promoted to prevent or treat diabetes, obesity, and erectile dysfunction. In addition a surf day focused on Spanish language sites targeting Hispanic consumers. As a result of these surf days, hundreds of companies have received warning letters requiring immediate corrections.
Are your label claims allowable? Do you have adequate substantiation for your claims? Avoid receiving an FDA warning letter or cyber letter by having Bioscience Translation & Application review your promotion materials, including catalogs, brochures, websites, third-party literature, advertisements, audiotape scripts, etc. for compliance with applicable regulations.
