Texas is first state to require new ephedrine labeling

In September, the state passed a new rule requiring that labels for all diet products containing ephedrine must carry a federal toll-free number for consumers to use in reporting adverse reactions to the FDA. Critics of the new ruling are concerned that the toll-free line is understaffed and may not be able to handle the calls that result from the new labeling requirement. An FDA spokesman countered. "The FDA is confident that the Medwatch reporting system would be able to handle the calls that might be generated by this regulation." Associated Press, September 7, 2001.
