News Advisory: Online Media Briefing to Be Held Tuesday, August 12, 1:00 pm EDT

Those rules, according to the FDA's web site, define "mislabeling" and "misbranding" as any regulated product labeled in an "incorrect", "inadequate" or "incomplete" way.

The evidence from a poll of 1,508 Americans by Zogby Analytics makes a strong case Americans are confused. As the report to be released on Tuesday will show: 57 percent of Americans do not know "amalgam" is "mainly mercury" and 23 percent actually believe the primary ingredient is silver.

Zogby’s data strongly indicate that decades of misle
