Mr. Rakesh Amin, a partner at the law firm of Weaver & Amin, made a presentation on "FDA & FTC Regulatory Issues in Today's Weight Loss Market" at the Weight Loss Products Conference on February 26 at Chicago Hilton and Towers, Chicago, IL.
Mr. Amin discussed how the ephedra issue unfolded and how half-truths and innuendo curtailed its use as a weight loss ingredient. Mr. Amin also addressed other popular diet ingredients and collateral issues such as product liability, civil litigation, current State, Federal and International regulatory positions, USP certification and the industry's trend in formulating and marketing alternative weight loss products.
