McCain withdraws support for the Dietary Supplement Safety Act

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has rescinded his support for the Dietary Supplement Safety Act, which would have granted the FDA more power over retailers and suppliers in the industry. According to the American Herbal Products Association, in a March 4 letter to Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released last Friday, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) noted that Senator McCain intends to withdraw his support for certain elements of S. 3002, "The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010," introduced in February by McCain and Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND).
