BILL NUMBER:S4151 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to regulating the sale of sports dietary supplements PURPOSE: The purpose of the bill is to ban the purchase of sports supplements by those under the age of 18. The bill will also require that consumers receive a copy of a warning label when they purchase certain products. These warning labels will tell the purchaser whether the product contains banned ingredients as determined by certain sports and regulatory agencies as well as stating specific side effects and whether these product contain synthetic botanicals. This bill will protect those who are underage from the dangerous side effects of these sport supplements. Furthermore, as a result of loopholes and lax regulations in federal law consumers are not able to determine what they are putting into their body and what is in these products. This act does not affect the sales of caffeinated energy drinks currently classified as supplements. This act will ensure that consumers are getting accurate information about what they are consuming and the risks that come with it. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends the public health law to add a new article 2-B regarding Sports dietary supplements.
