The FDAzilla database contains information on every FDA inspected site since the year 2000, and we continually update our data to obtain the latest inspections and enforcement actions.

All of our 483s and warning letters — over 25,000 documents — are retyped, and keywords are tagged + categorized. This enables you to do full text searches and to also cut & paste the information you need.

In this video demonstration, I’m going to show you how to perform a keyword search of FDA warning letters in our system. FDAzilla has about 15,000 warning letters in our database, and you can search for any term or combination of terms in those warning letters.
