Poll Results: Here is the Correct, or Should We Say, Incorrect Answer to Our Recent LinkedIn Poll

We recently conducted a poll, which was a bit complicated, even tricky. However, one of our key goals at GENflex Labeling Solutions is to educate consumers on the value of labels and the messages they convey.

So, to recap, here is what we asked:

Dietary supplements are required to have specific information on their product labels. Which of the following is NOT correct?

  1. Name of the manufacturer.
  2. List of all active ingredients.
  3. A disclaimer from the FDA.
  4. Use and safety instructions.

The correct, or in this case incorrect, answer is 2. All active or inactive ingredients must be listed on the product’s label.

The poll showed that 38 percent of the respondents selected this answer.

However, the same number of respondents selected 3, a disclaimer from the FDA.

That Food and Drug Administration disclaimer, as of 1994, reads as follows:

“The Statements (about this product) have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.”   

Once again, product labels are being used to help protect the consumer, which is one of their primary benefits.
