In brief: Several levels

The fda regulates drugs for purity and efficacy.
The fda regulates food for purity but not quality. The fda is forbidden by law to inspect in any way food supplements like vitamins and nutritional products unless there are serious complaints after they hit the market. Consumer reports will sometimes look at content. You cannot trust agencies paid for by the food industry.
