WASHINGTON, Aug 6 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's top official on Thursday vowed to more quickly warn companies about problems found during inspections and act more aggressively in serious cases.

The move will ensure "that warning letters and enforcement actions occur in a timely manner and that steps are taken to protect consumers in cases where immediate enforcement action is not possible," FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg said in remarks prepared for delivery at a Food and Drug Law Institute event.
