We point out that combinations of parameters that predict large counting rates in experiments searching for supersymmetric dark matter often tend to predict a very large branching ratio for the inclusive decay b→sγ. The recent measurement of this branching ratio, therefore, indicates that searches for supersymmetric dark matter might be even more difficult than previously anticipated.
