What is the Enforcement Report?

All drug recalls are monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are included in the Enforcement Report once they are properly classified. The FDA will determine if a firm's removal or correction actions of a marked product meet the requirements to be considered a "recall". The FDA will also determine the public hazard assessment and a recall classification will be published in the Enforcement Report.
