Enforcement Actions Take Too Long

There is a strong case to be made that enforcement actions take way too long with the FDA, and as a result our drug and food supply are less safe than they should be.

Take the consent decree from last week with Morton Grove Pharmaceuticals Inc. The Warning Letter was from March 2017 from an Inspection that ended in February 2016. So from inspection to consent decree, it took over five-and-a-half years. No matter where you sit on the regulatory action landscape, I hope you see a problem with that timing.
