I'll see if I can track down the full list of the companies that passed and failed some time in the future (I'm not a CL member).


"Of the 20 joint supplements marketed to people and their pets that were selected by ConsumerLab.com and tested by independent laboratories, 40 percent failed to contain what their labels promised."

Harry,

I have been getting most of my supplements either from Trader Joes or Swansons. I think I remember reading that Trader Joes checks to make sure their products have in them what they say they do. Do you know if Swanson makes the same claim? (edit: Oops, I see in the article that Swanson does guarantee and test their potencies. I guess one of their chondroitin products came up short, however.)

I was disheartened to see the Karuna chondroitin on the bad list. They make the progesterone cream I have been using. It looks like a couple of phone calls are in order.
