Dietary Supplements Containing Ephedrine Alkaloids Adulterated Because They Present an Unreasonable Risk; Final Rule

Food and Drug Administration, Public Health Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. J Pain Palliat Care Pharmacother.

Abstract

The Food and Drug Administration issued a final regulation declaring dietary supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) because they present an unreasonable risk of illness or injury under the conditions of use recommended or suggested in labeling, or if no conditions of use are suggested or recommended in labeling, under ordinary conditions of use. The agency took this action based upon the wellknown pharmacology of ephedrine alkaloids, the peer-reviewed scientific literature on the effects of ephedrine alkaloids, and the adverse events reported to have occurred in individuals following consumption of dietary supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids. The final Rule was published in the Federal Register, Volume 69, Number 28, Pages 6787-6854 on February 11, 2004. This rule that became effective on April 12, 2004 is now included in the Code of Federal Regulations (21CFR Part 119). This report includes the Table of Contents of the full Federal Register publication and selected sections and tables from that publication.
