Just FYI: In case you've heard about the removal of some herbal supplements

Just FYI: In case you've heard about the removal of some herbal supplements for not having what the labels state they have, (I DO buy some of these supplements, but NOT these brands). The stores,  supplements and brands are:

GNC: “Herbal Plus” brand  Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto. Only one supplement consistently tested for its labeled contents: Garlic

Target: “Up & Up” brand Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Valerian Root, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto. Three supplements showed nearly consistent presence of the labeled contents: Echinacea (with one sample identifying rice), Garlic, and Saw Palmetto. The remaining three supplements did not revealed DNA from the labeled herb.

Walgreens: “Finest Nutrition” Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto. Only one supplement consistently tested for its labeled contents: Saw Palmetto

Walmart: “Spring Valley” Gingko Biloba, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng, Garlic, Echinacea, and Saw Palmetto. None of the supplements tested consistently revealed DNA from the labeled herb. One bottle of garlic had a minimal showing of garlic DNA, as did one bottle of Saw Palmetto. All remaining bottles failed to produce DNA verifying the labeled herb.
