FDA recalls from the Food and Drug Administration are issued so that dangerous drugs and medical devices can be removed from the market and consumers can be protected. Voluntary recalls by a manufacturer can occur before an FDA recall is issued, often at the urging of the FDA. Either form of recall signals dangerous defects.
FDA warnings from the Food and Drug Administration provide details on the risks involved by using certain drugs and medical devices that the FDA finds to be defective. Such warnings do not mean a product is being recalled. But after further investigation, the FDA may issue an FDA recall at some point. Keep informed on the latest FDA warnings.
