FDA pushes for stronger warnings about breast implant risks, including cancer

WEDNESDAY, Oct. 23, 2019 (ABC News)—The Food and Drug Administration issued new breast implant guidance on Wednesday, recommending that manufacturers include serious warning labels about the potential complications and risks.

The administration recommended that breast implants carry a “boxed warning,” its strongest form of warning, to inform consumers about links to cancer and other risks in an effort to better inform women who are considering breast augmentation, according to a statement.
