Pubic Citizen urges FDA to Finalize New Generic Drug Labeling Rules

Back in November I posted that the FDA proposed a new regulations that would allow (and presumably encourage) generic drug manufacturers to add or update the safety warnings on their products. Go here and here for the background on the controversy.  More recently, I posted a comment on the manufacturers' objections to the proposed new regulations.  See here.

Now comes news that the prominent consumer advocacy group Public Citizen has published its comments on the issue, urging the FDA to move expeditiously to finalize the proposed rule.  Go here for the comments and here for more on the story.
