Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today regarding the introduction of the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010:

"On behalf of Major League Baseball, I would like to thank Senators John McCain and Byron Dorgan for their efforts to broaden the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory authority over dietary supplements. We fully support the proposed legislation designed to protect athletes and consumers from dangerous, mislabeled and tainted over-the-counter supplements. The continued leadership of Senators McCain and Dorgan has made an impact on this important issue."
