Who is Responsible?


Products containing PPA continued to be sold even after questions were raised regarding their safety. Many of these products were sold as over-the-counter medications that did not require a prescription. Thus, consumers had to rely on the manufacturer of the products for information. No warnings were included on the packages until the FDA issued the order requiring the companies to do so.


Although the FDA did eventually require stores to remove cold remedies and diet pills containing PPA from the shelves, there was no way for the agency to ensure that these products were out of the hands of consumers. Some of the manufacturers of diet pills and cold remedies that contained PPA were negligent in issuing warnings that their product might be hazardous. Other companies were more responsible and issued warnings and instructions for consumers regarding what they needed to do with the products.
