URGENT CALL TO ACTION: Ask your U.S. Representative to sign this joint Congressional letter on GFI 256!
One result of last week’s Compounders on Capitol Hill visits has been the creation of a joint congressional letter to FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine raising concerns about the great ambiguity in GFI 256 on animal compounding.
The bipartisan letter is anchored by Congressmen Mark Pocan (D-WI) and John Carter (R-TX).
Via the link below, please contact your Congressperson and urge them to sign on to this joint letter to CVM on GFI 256. As you’ll read in the message at the link below, they’ll need to contact Penny Stehlik in Rep. Carter’s office at Penny.Stehlik@mail.house.gov to sign on to the letter. The letter closes September 30, so time is short.
In doing so, they are helping ensure veterinarians and animal patients continue to have access to the compounded medications they rely on.
One more thing: If you know your U.S. House member personally, call, text or email them directly about this—IN ADDITION to sending the message via our portal below.
