FDA Alert – Latest Enforcement Actions on CBD

FDA issued warning letters to CBD food and supplement makers for selling products in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. 

The agency cited the lack of scientific research on the safety of cannabidiol-infused food products as the motivation behind the warning letters and reiterated that CBD is not generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for human or animal consumption.

The agency issued a press release detailing the latest move against fifteen CBD marketers. NGA urges its members to review the FDA press release and FDA’s recent “What You Need to Know” update and contact NGA’s Vice President of Government Relations & Counsel, Chris Jones, if you have any questions.
