ABSTRACT
The article reports on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s announcement for the necessity of actions such as safety label changes and Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) for all botulinum toxin products. The idea has come up after several reports received by the agency saying that botulinum toxin's effects may spread to all areas of the body from the injected area and may cause similar symptoms to those of botulism.
