Rose Sheet Quotes Partner John Villafranco on the Dietary Supplement Industry

Partner John Villafranco was quoted in the Rose Sheet article Supplement Industry Self-Regulation At Center Stage As Oversight Dims Under Trump,” about the regulation of dietary supplement advertising under the Trump administration. John noted, The Federal Trade Commission’s oversight of consumer health product advertising, for instance, should be less aggressive than during the eight years of the Obama administration.”

During his presentation at the American Institute Conference, he said, President Obama’s first appointee to head FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, David Vladeck, took a very activist role in monitoring ad claims and imposed a higher standard for supplement product claims. Without any question, we are embarking on a new and better time for the dietary supplement industry as it relates to the Federal Trade Commission.”
