DANGEROUS DRUGS, DANGEROUS MEDICAL DEVICES & RECALLS
In the United States, the health of the public is entrusted to and protected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA is responsible for ensuring the safety and effectiveness of our nation’s food, prescription and over-the-counter medication, medical devices, cosmetics, tobacco, and other products.
The FDA is charged with inspecting a vast amount of medications, medical devices, and other products, both imported and domestic. However, it does not have the funding, organization, or regulatory power to adequately inspect or review all of the products, especially those manufactured overseas.
Drug manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies are left to do business with little oversight from the FDA. While drug makers are required under the law to warn the public about any risks associated with taking a medication and accurately advertise the uses of a medication, many companies do not. This lack of regulation allows extremely dangerous drugs and defective medical devices to slip through the cracks every year, causing thousands of Americans to be sickened or injured each year by drugs or medical devices that were approved by the FDA. These dangerous drugs and devices may be completely ineffective or even contain severe side effects.
We rely on drugs and medical devices to improve our quality of life, but sometimes companies market unsafe products that may cause terrible (sometimes irreversible) side effects.
