Study Shows Harmful Ingredients Still Found in Recalled Supplements

A recent study found that dietary supplements containing harmful prescription drugs may still be available for purchase, even years after manufacturers recalled them. Researchers found ingredients in recalled drugs, purchased online, that were linked to heart attacks.

The study, which investigated 27 products, found 18 with ingredients not approved for non-prescription sales. 17 of the products still contained the ingredient that led to the initial recall. How did the questionable products slip through the cracks? Some blame the FDA, while others blame the pharmaceutical companies for putting profits ahead consumer safety.

Most of the supplements in the study were voluntarily recalled by manufacturers after the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) linked the products to concerning – and potentially deadly – side effects.

Dr. Pieter Cohen, a researcher at Cambridge Health Alliance, believes that the FDA should punish companies who continue to sell and manufacture products with recalled ingredients. "There should be significant legal and financial consequences for manufacturers who the FDA finds to be continuing to sell these spiked supplements," he said.

After completing the study, the FDA insured a slew of warnings and alerts about the dangerous products. Additionally, new sources report, the FDA "pursued civil and criminal enforcement" against products that were marketed illegally online.
