FDA-regulated products account for about 20 cents of every dollar spent by U.S consumers. FDA regulates about 75 percent of the U.S. food supply. This includes everything we eat except for meat, poultry, and some egg products.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.
