Food safety law makes one wonder

February, 2011

Eric F. Greenberg | Attorney-at-Law

A new food safety law is imminent at press time-unless it isn’t. The U.S. Senate passed its version over a year after the House passed it, and then it got sidetracked by procedural and political squabbles into mid-December. Assuming a bill gets made into law, perhaps even by the time you read this, and assuming it contains many of the key provisions that have been included so far, there is much to discuss, even as there will be even more once the bill is made law.

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

Why Would FDA’s Emergency Actions Stick Around After the Emergency is Over?

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

While some of the Food and Drug Administration’s actions in response to COVID-19 have been traditional, many others have been simplifications of regulatory requirements, and those simplifications could be made permanent.

Here’s one type of activity that was traditional: The agency has been slapping down phony drug products. The moment the COVID-19 pandemic hit the scene, dietary supplement products claiming to cure or prevent the virus started to be offered for sale, and immediately FDA and the Federal Trade Commission started making a regular habit of issuing stern warnings to the makers of the products.
