The FDA was recently sued in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C., over the language used in its Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). Although the FDA was originally granted the authority to promulgate dietary supplement GMPs in the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act of 1994, it did not publish them until June 25, 2007. The lawsuit accuses the FDA of being in breach of a Fifth Amendment requirement against vague and ambiguous laws. Petitioners ask for the dietary supplement GMPs to be re-written so that dietary supplement manufacturers understand the actions they need to take and when they are in breach of the law. The petitioners do not challenge, however, the right of the FDA to administer dietary supplement GMPs nor do they call for the law to be scrapped. The FDA has 60 days to file a response with the District Court.
