The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is one of the Nation’s oldest and most respected consumer protection agencies. Simply stated it’s mission is to :
- To promote and protect the public health by helping safe and effective products reach the market in a timely way
- To monitor products for continued safety after they are in use
- To help the public get the accurate, science-based information needed to improve health
Every day, every American comes in contact with a host of FDA-regulated products. In fact, FDA-regulated products account for about 25 cents of every consumer dollar spent.
