FDA’s recall of 859 supplement companies and what that means to you.

The recent bombshell news that the FDA recalled supplements from 859 brands is rocking the dietary supplement industry to its core. It all stems from one contract manufacturer, ABH Nature’s Health, that made products for all 859 brands. The FDA’s reason for closing this factory is because it distributed adulterated and misbranded dietary supplements. The scope of this recall is massive and includes products sold by 859 brands between January 2013 and December 2019.

It is a normal practice for supplements brands to contract out the manufacturing of their products to 3rd-party companies. It is estimated that less that one in a thousand brands actually manufacturers their own products. NutraBio is a rare breed, we manufacture the supplements that we sell. I learned the hard way back in the 1990’s that the only way I could have complete control over the quality of my supplements was to manufacture them myself. You are my customers, and absolutely no one will ever care more about you than I do.

NutraBio leads the industry in transparency, honesty, and integrity. Our manufacturing facility is designed from the ground up for quality, not for volume. We manufacture in small batches so your supplements are fresh. Our in-house lab tests every lot of raw ingredients; we then send it to an independent lab to verify that it meets our specifications. We test every single lot of our finished products using an independent lab, and we post those results online for you to see.  My facility is cGMP compliant and has undergone 5 full FDA cGMP audits. We have never had a warning letter, fine or worse. Our last audit was this past April, it lasted 3 weeks and finished with NOT a single 483 Observance. Last year we spent 3 times more money on quality control than on marketing, which shows exactly what our priority is!

NutraBio is a small company by industry standards but our passion runs deep. My goal is not to be the largest, fastest-growing, or coolest brand; it’s simply to wake up every morning and make the best supplements I can so that you get the best results that you can. To the outside world that probably seems phony, but to people who know me, my customers, you know it to be true.  When I look in the mirror each morning I’m proud of what I see, because I know the challenges and sacrifices I’ve made to insure the integrity of our products. I have an amazing team that believes in this philosophy and is passionate about delivering on it to you. We’re not perfect, we’ve made mistakes, and will in the future, but it’s our passion to be perfect that drives us to never compromise on our values.

Our NutraBio family is here for you and we will not let you down. Thank you for your support, it means more than you can imagine to us.

  1. I recently decided to purchase only from NutraBio. More than 55 years of training. Still going strong. (Mt Climber) Runner, Swimmer, Biker, Surfer, Kayaker, Body Builder. When I was between wives … I shared a house with my friend “Nick” Mr Western States, Managed a gym in Santa Cruz for 6 months in the late 70’s with intentions to purchase the facility. Then I married a female body builder/nutritionist. (Dave Draper attended our wedding). Because of my wife’s training/schooling I started to see the dishonesty and fake products early on. I decided against the gym purchase and went back into the Mechanical Contracting Businesses and retired 15 years ago. Never stopped training … never. After all the years I decided to BUY supplements instead of mixing my own. NutraBio is the absolute BEST. I know this from My years and years of training. I know my body. I know what heals it, drives it, builds it and what doesn’t. No better products out there. I had no intention of writing this. Just finished a heavy cardio lifting combination training session when I received this message. I am pleased to respond. Will

  2. You have amazing products!!

    Can you tell me why you are discontinuing your L-Tryptophan 500ml. It is the best one I have ever used.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Hope this is considered.

  3. That’s why you guys are the best. People need to research and know who is making their products, not just who promotes the product on I-Gram. (Like Roelly for BPI, etc) who are part of the recall. (And Labrada, etc). Huge news…

  4. Excellent post! I didn’t know about this and luckily I didn’t see any supplements I can recall using from any company on this list I found. I can’t believe that only one in a thousand brands actually manufacturers their own products!

    Keep up the quality work and I will always you Nutrabio Sups!

  5. Thank you for the info. We have been a customer of your company for many years and will continue to use your products.

    Joanne and Dick Shay

  6. But I am very disappointed that you drop manufacturing of calcium citrate/mallat and now vitamin C and folic acid to name a few. It appears all of your efforts are going into producing new flavors of your protein drinks. If you truly care you would not be discontinuing so many vitamin and other supplements.

  7. Nutrabio, thank you for your support and service in providing a safe, quality and superior product line for all athletes and health/fitness. It’s rare these days that sacrifice is given because quality is demanded. Excellent work. I look forward in what’s to come from Nutrabio in the future and continue to purchase more of your products in the future. Thank you, Kevin

  8. I’ve been using your products for over a year and found them to be the best. You’re products are what I’ve been looking for and since I live in NJ, it only made sense to support you the best I could. When I take them, I know the label on the outside is what is on the inside.
    Please keep up the good work!

  9. I absolutely love your products however delivery of said products is terrible. It is the sole reason that I no longer order from nutribio. If the snail like delivery process is ever corrected I would return to nutribio most expeditiously.

  10. Mark,
    You have the best supplements no doubt!! I really appreciate the extra step you take to insure quality! I am a loyal Nutrabio user. Thank you to you and everyone at Nutrabio!

  11. I want to thank you for your integrity. I use a good bit of supps and these companys that cheat us are a disgrace along with our gov that let’s them get away with it.I work hard for my money and expect to get what I pay for. Nutra Bio is the only place I buy vitamins and supps. Just thought I’d say thank you…..

    Thanks Steve

  13. i thank you for your great products..you’ve helped my health and fitness tremendously…..thanks mark i’ve your customer since 2005

  14. You have no idea what your ATP, working alongside other substances, does for me. Imagine all muscles cramping from neck to toes. This is one of the many problems of two autoimmune disorders combined with lumbar radioculopathy. Fibromyalgia is a life-robbing disease.

    Thank you guys a lot.
