The Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 established the Food and Drug Administration and revolutionized the American food supply. The Act outlawed poisonous patent drugs and food additives. It also demanded truth in labeling and advertising. For the first time, foods were required to have listed ingredients, and were tested to ensure they contained nothing more, nothing less.
