FDA and prescription inspectionsLax FDA plant inspections reveal risks of prescription contamination.
Counterfeit drugs can enter the American pharmaceutical supply in several ways. Many of these drugs are imported from overseas. As a matter of fact, most of the drugs sold in America are actually made in China and our inspectors have trouble getting in to inspect the plants. Lax inspection regulations can cause contamination which can harm or kill people.
Heparin cost-cutting measures - 81 deaths caused by contamination
A contaminated supply of Heparin got into the drug supply in 2008. Heparin is a powerful anti-clotting agent often used to stop the formation or growth of blood clots for people on kidney dialysis. As a result of the contamination, 81 people died before the FDA recalled it.
More than 280 people were also seriously injured as result of a Chinese manufacturer of Heparin using over-sulfated chondroitin, instead of actual heparin ingredients. The substitution was intentional. The Chinese plant that manufactured the heparin cut the medicine between 2 and 60 percent with chondroitin to save money. The plant had not been inspected for at least four years.
FDA cannot ensure regular plant inspections. Consumers are constantly at risk.
The FDA has neither the money nor the resources to inspect all drug manufacturing plants, and it depends on Big Pharma to inspect its own plants. Inspections are supposed to be carried out no less than every two years, but many plants go several years without inspections.
The FDA is more help to Big Pharma than to consumers. Not regularly inspecting drug manufacturing plants doesn't ensure safe drugs. It ensures that Big Pharma can continue to make big profits, because they don't need to worry much about being inspected by the FDA.
