FDA Sets Up RSS Feed

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added a new RSS feed to its Web site that provides links to agency news releases and other press announcements.

RSS – or Really Simple Syndication – is a burgeoning Internet technology that enables easy distribution of news and other Web content. Users can access the material through a news reader or “aggregator,” which downloads and displays the feeds. Users are able to get automatic updates on news items on topics of choice.

The feed is available at http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/news/rssPress.xml.

FDA also offers an RSS feed for information about recalls of products the agency regulates. It’s found at http://www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/rssRecalls.xml.
