    WASHINGTON — The US Food and Drug Administration launched a national campaign Friday alerting consumers to the risks of phony web pharmacies.

    The warning comes as nearly one in four people who shop online say they have bought prescription drugs on the Internet, according to the FDA..........

    To avoid being scammed, members of the public who choose to buy medication online should pick pharmacies that, among other things, require a valid prescription, are located in the United States and have a licensed pharmacist available for consultation, the FDA recommended.
