National Consumer Protection Week and FDA’s Fight Against Health Fraud Scam

This week, FDA joins 29 other government agencies and a host of private groups to highlight National Consumer Protection Week, an annual event for consumers to learn how to protect their privacy, manage money and debt, avoid identity theft, and prevent frauds and scams. And, helping protect consumers against health fraud or scams is where the FDA plays a role.

For the FDA, banishing fraudulent remedies has been a top focus since the agency was created—and that was back in the early 1900′s, when consumer protection involved protecting consumers from peddlers of snake oil and “miracle” elixirs.
