Reduce drug waste and environmental hazards by changing FDA drug expiration policy

This petition had 18,531 supporters


Every year, drugs that have reached their published expiration dates are thrown away, creating billions of dollars in waste and causing an environmental hazard.  Multiple researchers and the US military have proven that drug expiration dates can be extended safely. There is no recorded case of a patient being harmed by the use of an expired drug.  The pharmaceutical companies set these expiration dates to increase revenue and not to protect the public. It is time for the FDA to create a new policy and testing requirement for drug expiration dates in the United States that is good for the people and the environment!
