I have a question about the FDA requirements for warnings on dietary supplement labels. Specifically, the warnings typically posted to "Keep out of reach of children", "Stop use if unusual symptoms occur", and "Consult a physician before using if pregnant". Are these warnings actually required on the label by the FDA? My firm and many others have these warnings on their label, but I have recently noticed that some do not. Reviewing the labeling requirements from the FDA, I see no mention of these warnings. Is this just an industry commonplace, rather than a regulatory requirement? Labeling laws are so convoluted, even FDA inspectors have been unable to give straight answers at times.
I would also be interested to hear the Canadian and EU perspective on these warning labels.
