"The possibility of being held liable for injuries their products cause creates an invaluable incentive for manufacturers to make their products as safe as they can, to revise labels as soon as they become aware that they are inadequate and to remove unsafe products from the market," said Public Citizen lawyer Allison Zieve, who argued on behalf of the Riegels in Riegel v. Medtronic.
The thoughts expressed by Ms. Zieve and Ms. Claybrook in the June 26 Public Citizen press release were similar to some testimony that the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform heard at a May 14, 2008 hearing, where the main issue was whether FDA regulations should preempt, and thereby prohibit, state law product liability claims involving prescription drugs and medical devices approved by the FDA.

Allison Zieve, general counsel and director of the litigation group for the Washington, D.C.-based advocacy group Public Citizen, said, "The way the regulating scheme is set up, the drug manufacturers have the primary responsibility for ensuring the adequacy of the labeling. That makes sense because the FDA doesn't have the resources to monitor the thousands of drugs on the market.
"Most of the labeling changes are based on adverse-event reports submitted to the FDA, and the FDA makes those reports available to any manufacturer," she said.
