I put this thread into PRSI because it's not past any state's attorney general to make political hay while the sun shines on one of its investigations, and we're not known to refrain from saying so in our comments. Be that as it may, the NYS investigation found a bunch of largely mislabeled herbal supplements at four major retailers, with the products either not containing what was claimed, or containing unlisted ingredients / contaminants. By "largely mislabeled" I mean that the findings showed 50-83% of the labeling was false. The attorney general's office sent out cease and desist letters to the retailers. New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers There also a sidebar which confusingly starts out with a couple of the same paragraphs as the other piece but then lists the ugly findings in detail Whats in Those Supplements? Really you have to wonder what exactly was in the ones where it says like Echinacea and the finding was No echinacea or plant material found. ?!?! What, green sawdust? I suddenly feel vindicated (and lucky) for never having gotten into any of that stuff. It's enough I have to be concerned whether what's in that carrot I'm using in a soup later today is pesticide free, was not grown in sludge containing heavy metals, contains mostly plant genes, etc. etc.
