FDA Unveils New Section of the FDA Web site for Recalls Data and Other Agency Data Sets

September 30, 2010 20 comments
As part of making data available through the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Open Government Initiative, FDA has created a new section of the FDA Web site for agency data sets. The new section includes all available downloadable data for major recalls from 2009 to present based on information provided by firms in press releases, including data on the recent Shell Egg recall.  The new gateway features data sets in XML format, which allows developers to easily create applications and mashups centered around FDA data.  
You can check out the data sets here.  Let us know what you think by leaving a comment on this blog or sending an email to, subject line “FDA Data Gateway Feedback.”  As we look ahead, we are interested in your ideas about the data provided and how that data is organized.
