The FDA begins a pilot program seeking to expedite notifications of human drug product recalls to the public. The agency will modify the drug product section of the Enforcement Report, published every Wednesday, to include actions that have been determined to be recalls, but that remain in the process of being classified as a Class I, II, or III action. Such recalls will be listed under the heading, “Recalls Pending Classification: DRUGS.” They will be reposted with their classification once that determination has been made. Send comments or suggestions to CDERRecallPilot@fda.hhs.gov.
