USANA FDA-Registered as Drug Facility

August 8, 2011

The company says, raising standards “well above what is required of a dietary supplement manufacturer.”

Supplements brand USANA Health Sciences Inc. (Salt Lake City, UT) has been granted FDA drug-establishment registration, allowing the company to manufacture over-the-counter drugs and, the company says, raising standards “well above what is required of a dietary supplement manufacturer.”

The company manufactures more than 90% of its products in house, including all of its tableted nutritional supplements.

“Few companies voluntarily submit themselves to increased scrutiny, but since we operate in 15 countries, including Australia, where dietary supplements are highly regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), our base manufacturing standards are extremely high,” said the company’s CEO, Dave Wentz.
