Overview

Volume I focuses on the "Why" of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The evolution of food and drug law legislation and milestone legal cases in Food and Drug Law is included. Volume I contains United States Supreme Court legal decisions that have impacted on the practice of food and drug law. Chapter 1 details the "Why" of the FDA. Chapter 2 details key legislation enactments originating from the early English influence. Chapter 3 details landmark legislation and court decisions starting with 2000. For example, the decision of Washington Legal Foundation (WLF) v. Henney, decided in 2000, and Thompson v. Western States decided in 2002, invalidated portions of the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act based on First Amendment principles. The products that FDA regulates in interstate commerce account for about 25 percent of every consumer dollar spent. The United States Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) mission, in accordance with the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), is to protect the public health and safety. Public protection, a vital factor in food and drug law legislation, has remained steadfast over the years. Chapter 4 details the federal agencies that regulate food and drug related products. Each chapter contains critical analysis issues to explore.
