US FDA warning letters plunge under Bush reign
This article was originally published in Clinica
FDA enforcement activity has dropped precipitously during the Bush administration, as seen by an over 50% decline in warning letter numbers, according to a 15-month investigation by Democratic Representative Henry Waxman, of California. "Americans have relied on FDA to ensure the safety of their food and drugs for 100 years," said Mr Waxman. "But under the Bush administration, enforcement efforts have plummeted, and serious violations are ignored. The FDA cannot do its job when its enforcement arm is tied behind its back."
