WASHINGTON – The Natural Products Association (NPA) in a letter to Vice President Mike Pence today offered to assist with the production and distribution of medical supplies and products during the COVID-19 crisis.
“Our manufacturers and distributors have the appropriate FDA, DEA and state and local inspection requirements to produce not only dietary supplements, but also drugs and other FDA regulated commodities. Whether we are producing dietary supplements, foods or drugs, we are doing so meeting and exceeding all required quality requirements, which is of the utmost importance in this time of need.
We stand ready to assist with any uncertainty related to this capacity as the Administration responds to this crisis,” said Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D., President and CEO of NPA.
