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.
