As you know, dietary supplements, an FDA-regulated commodity of food, have more stringent federal regulations than conventional foods. New York Assembly Bill (AB) 4712 would create an overly burdensome state regulation and impose financial penalties for those retail establishments selling any product containing creatine monohydrate. This bill would force products containing creatine behind-the-counter and carry a civil penalty of up to $500 per violation for any retailer selling to a customer under the age of 18. New York legislators are unnecessarily targeting products that have been extensively studied and deemed safe for decades. The civil penalty threat to retailers is a revenue generating, money-grab proposal by the state legislature.
Write your legislator and tell them to oppose Assembly Bill 4712!
