Is It True That The Majority Of FDA Complaints Are For Aspartame?

Yes, but the recordings stopped in 1992 when the FDA quit categorizing the complaints as a NutraSweet grievance. They began putting the complaints into generic categories not related to aspartame, such as death, for example. If death by seizure was reported as a reaction to aspartame, the death was recorded as seizure only and not as an “aspartame” seizure.

So after 1992, specific aspartame complaints within the FDA stopped. Before this time, beginning two years after NutraSweet came on the market, between 78% and 85% of all FDA complaints were about aspartame.
