FDA official warns another public health crisis may be inevitable

CNN Money (3/15, Kavilanz) reports, "A senior Food and Drug Administration regulator warned that another public health crisis may be inevitable because the agency can't guarantee the safety of many drugs and food products manufactured overseas." John Taylor, FDA's acting principal deputy commissioner, "said the safety agency must reinvent itself to operate more effectively globally, or 'another public health crisis like Heparin seems inevitable.'" Taylor said the agency is "crippled in its mission to protect the health of Americans since a lot of medicine sold in the US is made abroad and outside of strict FDA oversight."
