The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should release all comments to the public that were submitted about a recent proposal to allow the pharmaceutical industry to circumvent labeling rules and tell doctors that its products have fewer risks than those described in FDA-approved labeling, Public Citizen said in a letter to Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell today. Public Citizen calls on the Secretary to order the FDA to withdraw the dangerous proposal.
