ATLANTA (AP) - Prosecutors say a jury in Atlanta has found a New York man guilty of charges related to the online marketing and sale of unsafe dietary supplements.

Federal prosecutors say 44-year-old Paul Chan, of Elmhurst, N.Y., was convicted this week of 30 felony counts. Prosecutors say he was marketing and selling supplements containing ephedrine in violation of a federal ban.

Prosecutors say Chan owned and operated The Wholesale Source, LLC, which sold supplements online.

The FDA in April 2004 declared supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids to be adulterated because they carry an unreasonable risk of illness or injury. Prosecutors say that from at least July 2005 through August 2012 Chan continued to sell supplements containing ephedrine alkaloids, even after FDA investigators told him it was illegal.

Sentencing has not been scheduled.
