Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. Receives FDA Response to Citizen's Petition
Date:2/25/2013

RICHMOND, Va., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. (RBP) announces that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has denied a Citizen's Petition filed by the Company.  In the Citizen's Petition, RBP presented a new evaluation of pediatric exposure data and recommended that the FDA adopt more stringent packaging standards and increased educational interventions to help reduce the number of children exposed to buprenorphine-containing products used to treat opioid dependence.  The FDA concluded that the safety data presented by RBP did not warrant these additional measures, deciding instead that existing labeling and safety programs were sufficient.
