FDA Making Adverse Reports Available to the Public

"Why FDA Is Making Data Extracted from Reports of Adverse Events for Foods and Cosmetics Available to the Public"

Personal Note:
I had filed an adverse reaction report with the FDA (by telephone with my state FDA representative) against a company that claimed their product was corn-free; and it clearly was not, since I suffered an allergic reaction requiring Benadryl.   When I tried to obtain a copy of my personal report through FOIA, I discovered that it would cost me approximately $250! 

Important:
If you have an allergic reaction to any food, medication, cosmetic, etc. from unlabeled corn/corn derivative ingredients; I strongly encourage you to file an adverse reaction report with your state FDA representative (refer to following link):
