Taking dietary supplements have become a daily practice for many Americans, but many people are unaware of the serious dangers these products can pose to their health. The Indianapolis Drug Injury Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys explain that numerous products have been found to have manufacturing deficiencies that could cause adverse health effects.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently initiated a number of recalls regarding dietary or workout supplements. Some of the recalls are due to undeclared ingredients in the products, including illegal substances, while others were the result of unsanitary manufacturing processes.

Regardless, data released in an article from Newsday showed as many as 70 percent of the roughly 450 companies who manufacture supplement products have violated FDA safety regulations in the past.

This statistic leaves many citizens wondering what they can do to prevent being harmed by supplements.

Stewart & Stewart Attorneys’ team of Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers state that refraining from using such products is the best way to stay safe. If an individual chooses to continue using supplements, checking with the FDA for recall information and discussing use of the product with a physician will help reduce the chances of being harmed. Also, a person should never take more than the recommended dosage on a product’s packaging.
