FDA SETS UP TOLL-FREE PHONE LINE ON BREAST IMPLANTS

 FDA SETS UP TOLL-FREE PHONE LINE ON BREAST IMPLANTS
 WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- FDA is establishing a


toll-free telephone line to provide FDA information materials to consumers on breast implants. It will begin operating today and will remain in service for as long as public inquiries on the implants continue at a high level. The number is 800-532-4440.
 FDA has received thousands of phone calls and letters from women on this subject since Jan. 6, when the agency announced a moratorium on the further use of silicone gel-filled breast implants. By using the toll-free number, women can receive up-to-date, accurate information materials on these products and their regulatory status.
 The line will be in service Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST. After operating hours, callers may leave their name and address, and the written information will be mailed to them.
