Associated Press: FDA Announces Plans to Improve Public Announcements on Food, Drug Safety

The Associated Press on September 30, 2009 reported, "The Food and Drug Administration is laying out plans to improve its public announcements on food and drug safety, more than three years after federal advisers recommended major changes." The agency "will begin studying public response to its announcements on potentially dangerous food and drugs."
