FDA Launches Resource to Increase Awareness of Animal Drug Safety-Related Labeling Changes
Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched a new resource to improve transparency and communication with veterinarians, animal producers and consumers about safety-related labeling changes made to FDA-approved animal drug products. Awareness of these safety-related changes is essential for the safe use and administration of FDA-approved animal products.
The new resource is in the form of a webpage titled “Animal Drug Safety-Related Labeling Changes,” which provides information on recent safety-related labeling changes and will be updated on a monthly basis when changes to drug labeling are approved by the FDA. Safety-related labeling change information will be available on the webpage for two years after it is first listed. The webpage will only include safety-related labeling changes. For more information about the most current labeling for a particular animal drug, veterinarians should reach out to the drug’s sponsor.
