Nettles, United States Attorney for the District of South Carolina, Leesa Washington and George Conits, Assistant United States Attorneys, respectfully files this unopposed Motion for Clarification. The Complaint filed in this case requested the arrest, condemnation, and disposal of dietary supplements located in the Anderson, South Carolina warehouse of GNC Holdings, Inc. containing the food additive DMAA (the “Defendant Articles”). In accordance with the Government's request in the Complaint, the Defendant Articles were seized because they were adulterated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act—specifically because DMAA is an unsafe food additive. Subsequent to the seizure, GNC Holdings, Inc. offered to voluntarily destroy, at its expense, the Defendant Articles. The United States informed GNC Holdings, Inc. that this offer was acceptable. Therefore, the United States voluntarily dismissed the case on July 23, 2013. See ECF # 5. 8:13-cv-01675-JMC Date Filed 07/26/13 Entry Number 7 Page 2 of 3
  • 3. 3 The Government intended with its voluntary dismissal that the seizure order would become a nullity and the products released for destruction. See In re Matthews, 395 F.3d 477 (4th Cir. 2005). For sake of clarity, and to facilitate the prompt destruction of products by GNC Holdings, Inc., the Government requests an order from the Court confirming that the warrant was vacated upon voluntary dismissal of the seizure action. A proposed order is attached. Respectfully submitted, WILLIAM N.
