China: Global Murderer

Heparin Contamination May Have Been Deliberate, F.D.A. Says

WASHINGTON ā€” Federal drug regulators believe that a contaminant detected in a crucial blood thinner that has caused 81 deaths was added deliberately, something the Food and Drug Administration has only hinted at previously.

Where did it come from?

Hello, China.

Your leaders are goons and thugs!

The F.D.A. has identified Changzhou SPL, a Chinese subsidiary of Scientific Protein Laboratories, as the source of the contaminated heparin. A Congressional investigator said the contaminant, oversulfated chondroitin sulfate, cost $9 a pound compared with $900 a pound for heparin.

Emphasis added by me.

I repeat: goons and thugs! And I add: thieves!

Chinese officials have disputed the F.D.A. contention that the contaminant caused death and injury, and they have insisted on the right to inspect American drug plants if the F.D.A. insists on inspecting Chinese ones.

Emphasis added by me.

Goons and thugs. And thieves. And now liars too!

The agency finally conducted an inspection of the facility in February and found so many problems that the F.D.A. blocked the plant from exporting to the United States. Mr. Nelson was even more critical of Baxter International, which bought heparin ingredients from Changzhou SPL from 2004 through 2008 but did not inspect the facility until September 2007.

Wake up to the rest of the world, China.

You’re disgracing yourselves.

And adding to our own disgrace too!

Under withering questioning, Dr. Woodcock said that the F.D.A. would need another $225 million annually to inspect every foreign drug plant every other year, the frequency most say is needed. The agency will spend $11 million this year on foreign drug inspections.

Emphasis added by me.

And here’s an idea for our dimwitted leaders — our own goons, thugs, thieves, and liars! How about prohibiting medicines, vitamins, and their ingredients from being imported from China?
