Never on Sunday!?

The proverbial title of a 1962 hit song by Petula Clark is something that piqued my curiosity today.  And yes, I am that old (I was 13 when that song came out and I loved to play with my pet dinosaur).  Anyway, I digress!  The reason I bring up “Never on Sunday” is, because, as I flip through the FDA’s All Approvals list, I see some approvals, whether it be for supplements and applications, occurring on a Saturday or Sunday.

Not sure why this is and I wonder if any readers might be able to shed some light on the subject.  Is this merely a mistake on the date posted on the list? Or is there a specific reason why FDA would issue an approval action on the weekend?  Your guess is as good as mine.  If you are interested in trolling the past approval actions, have at it; they can be found here.  Just search by month and have an old calendar at your ready for reference!
