In response, MCI USA convened leaders from 14 organizations in the community to act as a coalition; provided instructions and talking points to all coalition members, which were then distributed to consumers to take action; developed and conducted survey with 21,000 responses, presenting the results to the FDA; and represented the consumer voice through invited testimony at an FDA hearing.


Results:

  • The FDA and the FTC have “indefinitely delayed” any further action on this topic.
  • The association continues to be viewed as the advocacy leader, convener, and voice of the consumer for the industry.
