FDA Adds New Company to Red List


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has again updated Import Alert 86-07, which is its list of foreign manufacturers whose FDA regulated products are to be detained by the FDA without physical examination if those products are introduced into the commerce of the United States. In other words, if you purchase certain goods from one of the companies identified on this "Red List" then those goods will be detained by the FDA automatically upon presentation of the shipment to U.S. Customs, and you will likely have to export or destroy the merchandise.

The Vision Council has recently learned that one NEW company from China, Taizhou Pinxin Glasses Co., Ltd., has been added to the list.
