The FDA has been working on a diabetes initiative to remove from the market illegal products, including some labeled as dietary supplements that claim to mitigate, treat, cure or prevent diabetes and related complications. The agency recently warned 15 foreign and domestic companies that the sale of their illegally marketed diabetes products violates federal law.
