NPA called for industry engagement: “NPA has activated its industry-leading grassroots operation to elevate our concerns. Still, we also strongly encourage our friends in the industry to join our growing movement and to convince elected officials that this is the wrong path at exactly the wrong time.”
To combat the legislation, NPA has written letters stating its opposition to Senators Durbin and Braunas well as to theU.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the U.S. Department of Justice. In the letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Secretary Of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Xavier Becerra, NPA noted "grave concerns" with information that dietary supplement manufactureswould be required to provideunder the bill. NPA noted that the required information is "precisely the type of information that bioterrorists would need to introduce contaminants or poisons into the food supply, and it would be available to them in a publicly accessible database maintained by the federal government at taxpayer expense."
