A September 29 article in NutraIngredients-USA, “New Jersey Man Arrested for Selling Counterfeit Supplements on Amazon,” discussed the arrest of Brad Snyder of Marlton, NJ, for allegedly counterfeiting Pure Encapsulations and Nature M.D. branded products and selling them online. Rivkin Radler’s Steve Shapiro was quoted in the article.
Steve noted the seriousness of the charges and referenced other recent cases where supplement companies have reported counterfeits of their product on Amazon.
“Companies should be investigating what is going on online and protect their brands,” he told NutraIngredients-USA. “If they see things that are unusual, they should take steps to investigate the way that Nestlé, Fungi Perfecti and NOW have.”
