Health 2.0 News: Reporting Adverse Events and Lady Gaga in Lab

Today the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced the launch of a new app for smartphones that will alert consumers to the latest recall information in one spot, allowing them to track and actually see recalled products.  This means that a consumer doesn’t have to navigate a difficult and cumbersome Web site, or number of Web sites, to get the latest consumer information.
