FDA Notices of Judgment Collection, 1906-1963

From the announcement: The FDA Notices of Judgment Collection is a digital archive of the published notices judgment for products seized under authority of the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. The NJs are resources in themselves but also lead users to the over 2,000 linear foot collection of evidence files used to prosecute each case. The evidence files are a rich documentary resource filled with legal correspondence, lab reports and data, photographs, and product labeling and containers.

It appears that not everything is yet available to the public, but it is a good start. One needs a clear idea of what they are looking for, product / case but it should be a great source for background information in products liability issues.

Students who take Scientific Evidence at some point should keep this site in mind.
