FDA is launching a consumer web page and a monthly newsletter:
A Web page, “Consumer Health Information for You and Your Family” (www.fda.gov/consumer), provides comprehensive and timely consumer information. A free monthly e-newsletter, “FDA Consumer Health Information” (www.fda.gov/consumer/consumerenews.html), will alert consumers to content contained on the page…
The new consumer Web page will present important public health developments clearly and accurately in easy-to-read language. A current article describes FDA’s ongoing investigation of the recent recall of more than 100 brands of pet food due to potential contamination. Other current articles discuss the benefits and risks of pain relievers, facts about generic drugs, and what FDA is doing to keep produce safe.
The page also provides links to useful information about the various products that FDA regulates, including food, human and animal drugs, medical devices, and vaccines and other biologics. The page also links to health information available from other U.S. government sources, and provides essential health information in Spanish.
