Attorney General Says Vitamin Fraud Hits South Florida

February 8th, 2008 by flanews

A South Florida businessman faces fines after an employee called the FDA. The Attorney General said Vitamin Hut owner Gray Dubin was changing the expiration dates on vitamin bottles. Three of Dubins Fort Lauderdale businesses were raided. Authorities seized several boxes of pills. Attorney General Bill McCollum said changing expiration dates on food and drugs can be dangerous. McCollum added theres no way for consumers to protect themselves from this type of fraud.

The public frankly cant protect itself. They dont know if something is beening doctored or not, McCollum said.

According to a press release, an undercover agent with the Attorney Generals office, bought vitamins from all three stores and had them tested.
