And the 11th and Maybe the Biggest Reason of All that the FDA Should have Jurisdiction Over All Compounding:
11. The Health Care Fraud Involved in this Industry is the main reason. It is a 5 Billion Dollar Business. Wonder how much of that was obtained by fraud and actually belongs to the Federal Government. The "manufacturing compounders" might be guilty of health care fraud but who has the ability and the means to go undetected in this area--the small --mom and pop compounders. True the federal government already has criminal laws and false claims already to rein these violators in giving the FDA authority over compounding would add one more layer of protection.
