Any government agency is a monopoly on force.Without the FDA,private companies would have certification standard programs.
Much like UL (underwriters Laboratories). www.UL.COM
NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) www.NSF.org
Better Business Bureau www.BBB.org
There are a quite few more like these and without a government monopoly,there would be even more to fill the void.The big difference is companies have the freedom to choose to certify their products,they are not forced with threats of fines or imprisonment.
