ABSTRACT
The article reports on the shortcomings of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s overseas drug inspections. It mentions that active ingredients of over-the-counter medicines in the U.S. are produced in China and India and FDA inspects only a part of them. In a letter to the FDA, House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman John Dingell recommended that a permanent FDA office be established in each country.
