The Food and Drug Administration is looking at more aggressive action to tell women considering breast implants about the potentially serious risks. The agency proposed on Wednesday that manufacturers should print a so-called "black-box warning" on implant packaging – its strongest form of caution.

The move comes as the agency is taking heat from women who say they weren't warned of potential complications linked to breast implants before surgery, reports CBS News' Anna Werner. The warning the FDA is proposing will lay out those risks.

FCC Proposes $272,000 Fine Against CBS for ‘Young Sheldon’ Alleged Emergency Tone Misuse

FCC Proposes $272,000 Fine Against CBS for ‘Young Sheldon’ Alleged Emergency Tone Misuse The Federal Communications Commission continues to crack down on misuse of the Emergency Alert System tone on television. The government agency has proposed a $272,000 fine against CBS Broadcasting for allegedly airing a simulated emergency alert tone during a nationally televised episode of “Young Sheldon” on April 12, 2018. The episode “included a sound effect accompanying a tornado warning, which the producers modified, but still audibly resembled actual EAS tones,” said the FCC in a release regarding the proposed fine.

Complications include chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even a rare type of cancer called breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. A large majority, about 67%, of those cancer cases have been linked to rougher textured implants. While rare, the cancer has already killed 33 women.

Earlier this year, one of the largest manufacturers of breast implants, Allergan, voluntarily recalled all its textured implants due to the increased cancer risk. Allergan has yet to comment on the FDA's move.

One plastic surgeon CBS News spoke to said an obvious problem with the FDA's proposal is that implants are selected while the patient is already in surgery. She says many patients never get to see the products' labels until the implants are already in their bodies.

Twitter proposes draft deepfake policies .
And it wants your help in choosing how to moderate themLate last month, the Twitter Safety team announced it’d be seeking feedback on what a deepfake and synthetic media policy would look like on the platform. In a blog post on Monday referencing that announcement, Twitter vice president of trust and safety Del Harvey wrote that if manipulated media was flagged on the platform, Twitter could end up placing a notice next to it alerting users that it’s been distorted, warning them that it’s false before they share it, or adding context in the form of a link or news article breaking down why others believe that it’s untrue.
