[b:75d61f01ff]Not all vitamin and minerals are tested or verified for their contents. [/b:75d61f01ff]The FDA does not test supplements until someone complains or someone becomes ill or has an adverse reaction. [b:75d61f01ff]It's Buyers Beware[/b:75d61f01ff], this is one of the reasons USP was established. They are a non-profit, 3rd party verifier of pharmacueticals as well as supplements.

If you vitamin or mineral hasn't been tested by USP, it's probably still OK. However, I really like the idea of someone volunteering their products for testing as well as their manufacturing facility.

Here's the link to their site. They have a product and manufacture list. Some vitamin manufacturers bottle for several stores brands.

Look for the USP seal on your vitamin and minerals, this indicates that they have been tested and verified.
