California State Bill on dietary supplements for weight loss presented
Apr 01, 2021
This bill, commencing July 1, 2022, would prohibit a retail establishment from selling dietary supplements for weight loss and over-the-counter diet pills, as defined, to any person under 18 years of age. The bill would require a retail establishment, among other things, to limit access to those products, as specified, and would require the department to determine which products will be subject to those access limitations. The bill would also require the department to develop a health-related notice regarding those products, and would require a retail establishment to conspicuously post that notice at each purchase counter. The bill would make a violation of these provisions by a retail establishment subject to a civil penalty of no more than $1,000 and subject to the Unfair Practices Act as an unfair practice. By expanding the scope of an existing crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
