Congressman ask for review of Bayer aspirin heart health claims

WASHINGTON Two Michigan democrats have singled out Bayer’s marketing of its Aspirin with Heart Advantage, a combination product that includes a dietary supplement, that appears to go against a Food and Drug Administration’s request not to advertise such products, said House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Chairman John Dingell, according to a Reuters report published Tuesday.

Dingell, along with Rep. Bart Stupak, fired off two letters suggesting that the supplement/analgesic combination product might need FDA approval—one to Bayer and the other to Health and Human Services secretary Michael Leavitt. HHS oversees the FDA.
