The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued revisions to  the Identity Statement portion of its 2005 Dietary Supplement Labeling Guide. The modifications correct the response to the question “Can the term ‘dietary supplement’ by itself be considered the statement of identity?” The guide now explains “that the term ‘dietary supplement’ may be used as the entire statement of identity for a dietary supplement and to explain the basis for that conclusion.” The revisions also provide “clarity and consistency with 21 CFR 101.3(g) and FDA’s guidance on statements of identity for conventional foods in ‘A Food Labeling Guide: Guidance for Industry.’” The corrected guidance was issued without opportunity for public comment, for immediate implementation, but will remains subject to comment.
