Public Citizen Attorney Sarah Sorscher spoke on pharmacy compounding at a conference focused on enforcement by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Public Citizen has pushed heavily for the FDA to respond more aggressively when compounding pharmacies violate federal law. The presentation includes several examples of areas where the FDA failed to enforce federal law against compounding pharmacies in the past. The presentation also highlights Public Citizen’s concerns moving forward as the FDA implements the Drug Quality and Security Act, a new statute governing compounding that was signed into law by President Obama on November 27, 2013.
