It is clear from the recent pattern of FDA "oversight" that they require the oversight of watchdog groups that are not so politically connected as the FDA has failed the public trust as much as Congress itself with it's inability to remain true to their employers---the People and vulnerable to "buyout" by special interest corporations. It is patently obvious that a consumer has the basic right to information that will not jeapordize a business' LEGITIMATE chances at profit but that safety and health concerns are ethical and moral REQUIREMENTS for business to abide by. Therefore if any business makes or sells a product that so much as HINTS at a possibility of a safety concern it is the business' duty to report all such facts as are available to the consumer and let that consumer evaluate for themselves what is best under their personal circumstances. Sadly, businesses continue to operate under "caveat emptor" and will go to any lengths to hide danger in search of profit and the FDA is now among their number. I urge the FDA to return to it's proper function of protecting the Public and the Public to not place blind trust in the FDA or any other Government organisation but rather to be mindful that ethics are best served when carefully monitored.
Respectfully,
S. Andrew Alexander
