Public Citizen v. FDA Cesium Chloride

On July 23, 2018, Public Citizen submitted a citizen petition to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requesting that it require the immediate removal from the market of all dietary supplements containing cesium chloride or any other cesium salt.  Although the FDA has acknowledged the safety risks posed by cesium chloride, more than a year has passed since Public Citizen submitted its petition, and the FDA has not granted or denied the petition.  Accordingly, Public Citizen filed suit to compel the FDA to respond to the petition.
