The FDA is responsible for about 80% of the food consumed in the U.S. However, the FDA does not monitor meat, poultry, and egg products. The Food Safety Inspection Services of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is responsible for the safety, proper packaging, and labeling of meat, poultry, and egg products.What is a recall?
A recall is when a product is removed from the market because it is defective, potentially harmful, or poses some safety threat. Recalls can either be voluntary on the part of the company or can be in response to action by the FDA.Do over the counter medications follow the same approval process as prescription drugs?
No. For over the counter drugs, the FDA tests the active ingredients and labeling. Once the safety, effectiveness, and labeling of the active ingredient has been established, new products that comply with a set of standards for that active ingredient generally do not require new approval.
