The Food and Drug Administration has been a terribly ineffective regulatory agency for many years. Literally tens of thousands of people have been harmed by drugs that were approved by the FDA and then made it to market despite serious questions. (For details on FDA recalls, please see the information provided on our Online Information and FAQ pages.)
Often these drugs are wholly ineffective while, at the same time, posing deadly risks to patients. On March 4, 2009, the United States Supreme Court ruled that FDA approval of a drug would not immunize drug manufacturers from liability for failing to warn consumers of the risks posed by such drugs. This landmark case out of Oregon, Wyeth v. Levine, represents a substantial victory for consumers.
