FDA allows conventional food manufacturers, processors, packers, transporters, distributors, receivers, holders, and importers to forward reports of serious adverse events in connection with their products to FDA by filing Form 3500.

FDA requires reporting of serious adverse events involving dietary supplements. All reportable events can be documented on the FDA’s Safety Reporting Portal.
