Dietary Supplements

Dietary supplements are supposed to be safe and helpful – not harmful. Unfortunately, many supplements have unexpected serious risks. Supplements can be just as dangerous as drugs. FDA has very little oversight of supplements, mostly acting after there is evidence of serious injury or death.

The supplement industry has been fraught with fraud:

  • The previous owners of Metabolife lied to the FDA they had not received reports of users who had suffered heart attacks and strokes.
  • The previous owner of Xenadrine was caught faking weight loss pictures. The Company hired models to gain weight and reversed the before and after pictures.
  • Several companies have been caught illegally “spiking” their supplements with prescription drugs.
  • A Federal Trade Commission study shows that supplement adds commonly contain false representations and unsubstantiated claims.

You need attorneys who understand the special world of drug, supplement and device litigation. Through successful litigations against companies that made harmful products, Andrews Thornton Higgins Razmara has obtained compensation for injured consumers.
