RESOURCES TO FILE COMPLAINTS

Many times we get ripped off, done wrong by a company or what have you, 
and we don't know where to get help, file a complaint, etc.  
I've listed below resources to file complaints and some of them you can file anonymously.  
(thank you Carrie Sterma for your help on this!)

*If you think you have suffered a serious harmful effect or illness from a dietary supplement product, your health care provider can report this by calling FDA's MedWatch hotline at 
1-800-FDA-1088 or using the website http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/report/hcp.htm. The MedWatch program allows health care providers to report problems possibly caused by FDA-regulated products such as drugs, medical devices, medical foods and dietary supplements. The identity of the patient is kept confidential. Consumers may also report an adverse event or illness they believe to be related to the use of a dietary supplement product by calling FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or using the websitehttp://www.fda.gov/medwatch/report/consumer/consumer.htm. FDA would like to know when a product causes a problem, even if you are unsure the product caused the problem or even if you do not visit a doctor or clinic.  SOURCE:FDA Dietary Supplements: Adverse Event Reporting
