Program descriptive:

This past November, the Justice Department announced the filing of multiple criminal and civil cases against several dietary supplement manufacturers for falsified labeling and product misrepresentation. In addition to a criminal indictment of the company in one of these cases, i.e., USP Labs, company officers and directors were also individually indicted, thus dramatically

changing the enforcement landscape in the dietary supplements arena.

  • Analysis of USP Labs and its implications for:
    • corporations vs. individuals
    • manufacturers vs. retailers
  • Comprehending the significance of individual criminal indictments and the Yates Memo to the supplement industry
  • Exploring the implications of this case for civil actions
  • Predicting future enforcement activity concerning importation, cGMPs, FCPA compliance, etc.
  • Analysis of other Federal Partners “clean sweep” actions and their significance
  • Examining joint FDA and DOJ enforcement actions against bad actors
