Legal Action Pursued against a Company for Mislabeling Supplements

Posted on Dec 29, 2011
PharmPro reports that legal action is being pursued against a company for mislabeling its supplements.

On behalf of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Justice has, for the first time, filed an injunction against a supplement maker. This comes as a result of the company failing to comply with label requirements.

Label requirements have become stricter through the years. Whether the labels are misleading, contain wrong information or don’t include adequate information, these can lead to a recall. In addition, it opens up the doors for lawsuits. 

Correct and detailed labels are most especially important when it comes to food, medical devices and drugs. Even though this is a preventable type of mistake, labeling problems account for about 10 percent to 20 percent of drug recalls.

The 3 most common types of labeling mistakes include: 
  • incorrect listing of ingredients;
  • misidentification of the product; and
  • incorrect dosages. 
When you have suffered serious injuries as a result of a product that has labeling errors or for any other negligent reason, you could be entitled to compensation. Speak to a Louisville medical malpractice attorney to learn what options may be available and how you can protect your rights.
