FDA citizen petition

On March 5, 2015, a citizen’s petition was filed by Sarah Salem-Robinson PA-C (“Petitioner”), with the FDA asking that the Commissioner issue a ban on laparoscopic power morcellators.  In particular, Petitioner requests the Commissioner to issue such a ban because Petitioner asserts that power morcellator devices have been deemed as safety hazards with the ability to spread undiagnosed cancer.
