The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is an agency run by the Executive Branch of the American government that makes sure that all food and medical supplies are safe to eat or use before going out to the general public. This was created by president Theodore Roosevelt after the novel by Upton Sinclair called ' The Jungle ' was released, which described the horrors in the meat industry. Questions in this category should include questions about the recall of certain foods and drugs, testing methods used by this agency, and the history of the FDA.
