Read the full article: Pure Food and Drug Act passes in Congress, June 23, 1906 - Andrew Glass - POLITICO.com:

"On this day in 1906, the Pure Food and Drug Act cleared a hurdle toward its passage when the House and Senate both endorsed a joint conference committee report favoring the bill. The House vote was 240-17. President Theodore Roosevelt signed the landmark Progressive Era legislation into law on June 30.

The statute for the first time regulated food and drugs that moved in interstate commerce and forbade the manufacture, sale or transportation of poisonous patent medicines. It arose, with strong White House support, in the wake of exposés by such muckrakers as Upton Sinclair and Samuel Hopkins Adams."

Read the full article: SecuringIndustry.com - USP starts field trials of FDA fake drug screening device:

"The US Pharmacopeial Convention has started field testing a new low-cost screening device designed to detect counterfeit and poor quality medicines quickly.

The handheld CD-3+ unit - originally developed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) - uses multiple light sources to look at packaging using different wavelengths and provide images that can be interpreted by the user to differentiate between genuine and falsified medicines. The approach may also be applicable to individual tablets."
