FDA To Expedite Recall Announcements
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued draft guidance aiming to increase and expedite product warnings and recalls. According to FDA Voice, recall information has historically not been released to the public until after a weeks- or months-long evaluation and classification process. The agency plans to add “not-yet-classified” recalls of drugs, food and veterinary products to its weekly Enforcement Report, but the addition will not affect existing protocols for working with companies. The deadline for submitting public comment is March 20, 2018.
