Close the Generic Drug Safety Loophole

This petition had 24,552 supporters

Generic drugs make up 80% of all prescriptions filled in the United States. But generic drug manufacturers are not allowed to independently update their labels to warn of newly discovered side-effects. And they can’t be held accountable if their drugs injure or kill Americans.

The FDA has proposed a plan to fix the problem, but it is under attack by the generic drug industry. The plan has already been delayed once, and it could be delayed again.

Tell the FDA to move forward in ensuring all prescription medicines, including generic drugs, carry current and accurate safety warnings – because safety is an issue that cannot wait.
