Supplement Maker Touts 'China Free' Products
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Okay, since politicians say we shouldn't depend so much on Chinese food and safety regulations, one U.S. company is taking matters into its own hands.
Our last word in business today is China-free products. That's how the supplement maker Food for Health International is promoting its supplements. It has started labeling its 9-A-Day-Plus capsules China-free.
The company says vitamins and supplements from China, so it wants to set itself apart, and not just with its products for people. Food for Health promises that it's healthy dog supplements are also China-free. So even if your dog's pet food is tainted, you can be pretty sure his vitamin pills are pure.
