You got your defibrillators, and you got your remote car starters: http://www.avvo.com/legal-guides/ugc/carbon-monoxide-dangers--remote-car-starters

If the government is responsible for one, they should also be responsible for the other. But FDA? Food and Drug? A defibrillator is neither *food* nor *drug*. This is clearly a case of "Who's in charge here? Omigod, it's the gummint!!"
