Stat is reporting that the Food and Drug Administration has delayed its issuing of a final rule that would let drug manufacturers update the safety warnings on their products independently, rather than seeking FDA approval to do so. The report notes that this is the second time the FDA final rule issuance has been delayed since the rule was proposed in 2013. The proposed rule has been met with opposition from such organizations as CVS and various groups representing manufacturers, pharmacists and wholesalers due to the number of different labels that would come out of the rule.
