FDA Emergency Numbers

 

FDA Veterinarian Newsletter 2007 Volume XXII, No IV

The Food and Drug Administration maintains a system of emergency phone numbers for complaints or concerns about any product FDA regulates.

The main number, which can be used to contact FDA headquarters, is 301-443-1240. Calls to that number go to FDA’s Office of Emergency Operations (OEO) during regular business hours, or to a Late Duty Officer volunteer at other times. All calls are returned.

Callers, in many cases, should consider contacting their local Complaint Coordinator (see below). The District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and each State has one (and California has two).

Dorothy Miller, OEO Director, said that the emergency numbers should be used only for FDA-regulated products, and not for medical emergencies. For medical emergencies, call 911.

Main FDA number 1-866-300-4374 or 301-796-8240
