NNFA reacts to steroid hearing

March 13, 2006

The National Nutritional Foods Association (NNFA) reacted to the House Committee on Government Reform's hearing on the regulation of dietary supplements, stating that anabolic or "designer" steroids, even if they are labeled as "dietary supplements," are illegal drugs that are masquerading as legitimate supplements in the face of inadequate enforcement. The industry also contends that the typical consumer who purchases vitamins, minerals, or other nutritional supplements is not at risk of inadvertently ingesting anabolic steroids.
