|Title:||Excluding Food from Classification as Medicinal Products: The Implication on Consumer Protection||Contributor(s):||Marimuthu, Sharllene (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/16182||Abstract:||Food is generally not viewed as a medicinal product. However, advertisements for food which bear therapeutic claims may result in the food being classified as a medicinal product. In the United States and Malaysia, the general rule is that food is classified as a medicinal product if therapeutic claims are made in the advertisements. The general rule is, however, subject to exemptions, and the exemptions in the two jurisdictions vary considerably. This article examines the implications of these exemptions for consumer protection in the two jurisdictions. It explores whether or not there is inadequate protection for consumers when food, which qualifies as a medicinal product, is not so classified and, accordingly subject to regulation as a medical product.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||ICPL 2011: International Conference on Emerging Issues In Public Law: Challenges and Perspectives, Shah Alam, Selangor, 13th - 14th December, 2011||Source of Publication:||International Conference on Emerging Issues In Public Law: Challenges and Perspectives (ICPL 2011) Proceedings CD-ROM (Parallel Session 2B: Company & Commerical Law), p. 1-23||Publisher:||Universiti Teknologi MARA||Place of Publication:||Shah Alam, Selangor||Field of Research (FOR):||180105 Commercial and Contract Law||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 111
