FDA cracks down on web pharmacies

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stepped up its fight against counterfeit and other potentially harmful medicine sold over the Internet.
The FDA has ordered operators of about 4,100 websites to immediately stop selling unapproved medications to U.S. consumers. This follows the FDA's launch last Friday of a campaign to warn consumers that the vast majority of online pharmacies do not follow laws or pharmacy industry standards and their products could harm or even kill people.
“FDA BeSafeRx – Know Your Online Pharmacy” is a national campaign to educate consumers about the dangers of buying medicine from fake online pharmacies and help people safely buy medicine online.
