COVID-19 Quick Facts
✘ There is no evidence that the virus is passed through food or food packaging, which is also relevant to supplement packaging and should be a relief for consumers. Consumers will not contract the virus from supplements or their packages.
✘ The FDA appears to acknowledge the “essential” nature of food and healthcare products, so would expect these companies to continue to operate despite local and state “shelter-in-place” orders.
The information above was reported by CRN as a recap of the FDA’s Briefing for Food Stakeholders on COVID-19.
