FDA Drug Topics: Fraudulent Products –
Hidden Ingredients and Unproven Claims in Products Marketed as Dietary Supplements
Date: Tuesday, November 16, 2021
Time: 1 PM EDT | 10 AM PDT
Duration: 60 minutes
As the marketplace for dietary supplements has evolved, so has the marketplace for the illegal sale of adulterated products that contain ingredients ranging from prescription drugs to controlled substances. Bad actors may prey on vulnerable populations or exploit public health emergencies with unproven claims regarding their dietary supplements. This webinar will help increase awareness of this public health issue, provide an overview of the steps FDA is taking to protect consumers from fraudulent products marketed as supplements, and provide resources and the means that the public can report issues related to these types of products.
After signing up for this webinar, registrants will receive a calendar invitation with details on how to join the online meeting. Instructions on how to claim CE credit and obtain a copy of the presentation slides will be emailed to participants the next business day after the webinar.
Please note that the webinar capacity is 1,500 participants; registration does not guarantee entry. Those who are unable to join the meeting may either view the webinar recording that will be posted online or participate in the home study CE course that will be available in a few weeks.
The FDA CDER is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the health care team.
