Guilty. I just bought some cheapo Vitamin D-3 from Target; not an herbal...but the color was FUNKY- orangish, not golden. They are going to the trash. Lesson learned.

I've been following this story, Circ. SAD.

I would advise against any of the store brands, for supplements, medicine, food items. The people I know who are involved in that supply chain are not ones you want controlling what goes into your mouth.

I saw that, too. YIKES. Oh, hell, NAW. I research and research and then research some more, ensuing that I'm buying the highest quality supplements; only to promptly forget exactly why I'm taking this or that one. lol Naw, it's not that bad.

Gotta be careful, my lovelies! Especially us. Rice and houseplants could be the straw that broke the BBB.

Does anyone know anything about the Himalaya brand?
