What is being Done?


The FDA responded to the problem by first asking stores to voluntarily remove products containing PPA and eventually requiring them to do so.  The agency has also made efforts to educate the public about the risks associated with PPA.


Manufacturers of diet products and cold remedies have stopped using PPA as an ingredient.


A proposed class action lawsuit was denied on the grounds that individual factual inquiries would render the case unmanageable. Indeed, the widespread use of PPA prior to the FDA taking action would mean that virtually every American could conceivably make a claim against at least one or more manufacturers. A court in New Jersey ruled that PPA cases could proceed on an individual basis.
