FDA Misses Deadline To Ban Devices Used To Shock Those With Special Needs
[Source: Disability Scoop]
The Food and Drug Administration missed its own deadline to finalize a ban on devices used to administer electric shocks on people with developmental disabilities.
The agency said in late 2018 that it intended to finalize a 2016 proposal to disallow so-called electrical stimulation devices. At the time, the FDA said regulations would be issued by the end of 2019, but to date, no action has been taken.
