On February 23, 2015, Nature’s Way received a letter which constituted “a request for documents and information relating to an ongoing investigation by the New York State Office of the Attorney General (“NYAG”) concerning the authenticity and purity of herbal dietary supplements and associated marketing.” The letter from the NYAG makes no allegations against Nature’s Way and provides no indications of any quality or compliance problem with any Nature’s Way product. The letter is simply a “request” for documents and information.
Nature’s Way products are produced in accordance with the federal Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Dietary Supplement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), 21 CFR 111. Nature’s Way is audited by FDA to confirm compliance and continues to hold Dietary Supplement GMP Certification through NSF International, a GMP Certificate from the Australian Department of Health’s Therapeutic Goods Association (TGA) and is a licensed site for the production of Natural Health Products (NHPs) marketed in Canada. Nature’s Way intends to cooperate with the NYAG request for documents and information, as we are proud of our Quality Assurance processes and the steps that we take to both comply with the law and produce products of the highest quality.
