It does suck, but I doubt the American government is willing to dish out the funds to monitor them closely and publicly.
Many companies around the globe are required to "police" themselves, it seems to work most of the time.
Just rest assured that they have to make something like a bi-annual report to show that they are keeping tabs on themselves properly.

Ok , I will once again take the minority stance here.
Without the FDA anyone, company could create drugs that "supposedly" cure us.
In reality they could kill us without ever being tested.
The point that we have professionals who are experts in their field experimenting these products before the public takes them, makes me feel a whole helluva lot better.
Would you rather have Bankers test new drugs?
