I don't really know but there is usually a catalyst. Generally it comes out of consumer advocacy hearings or re-hearings or litigation findings.

As an aside but highlighting how stuff is with the FDA, the FDA was petitioned two years ago to ban Darvon and Darvocet (propoxyphene) by a consumer advocacy group - I'm waiting to hear how that one will go and if that will hit the media circuit. That painkiller has been around forever.
