Food and Drug law is the law pertaining to and governing the discovery, development, production, distribution and sale of products subject to the jurisdiction of and regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has been given responsibility within the Executive Branch of the United States government for administering the regulation of products that fall within the statutory definitions found within the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. 360 et seq.

Food and Drug law is a complex area of legal practice, because the subject of the legal framework consists of products that are often highly-engineered, with performance and safety based on expansive scientific principles. Also, these products are widely used, and relied upon by the American public — and as a result, constitute some of the highest-profile products in commerce today. Recent estimates have concluded that approximately 25% of the United States’ Gross Domestic Product is subject to the jurisdiction of and regulation by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
