It seems that problems with drugs production quality aren't only in Asia.
We have problems here, at home, too.

U.S. drug inspectors recently recorded several new quality- control problems at an Eli Lilly and Co (LLY.N) plant that is already the subject of a federal investigation over manufacturing lapses, according to a government report reviewed by Reuters.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration findings come nearly three years after the agency's inspectors began documenting quality-control issues at the same Lilly plant in Branchburg, New Jersey. Last year, the U.S. Department of Justice launched a criminal investigation following a Reuters story that detailed allegations of poor manufacturing practices and data falsification at the facility: poor manufacturing practices, manufacturing lapses, falsified or destroyed records, shipping product out before quality (control) completes their investigation and staff shortages.

Ouch...

This has always been an issue. Not as bad when I became a pharmacist in 69. But definitely there. It's gotten worse since major manufacturers moved around the world. I remember when there were major issues with several major American plants.



This is now worse because of the multitude of generic manufacturers throughout the world as well as fewer FDA inspectors

Another US pharma company to avoid:
In a lengthy warning letter, the FDA blasted South Carolina-based manufacturer Nephron Pharmaceuticals for a variety of issues including microbial contamination, quality control and multiple failures by the company to adequately address problems previously identified by the agency.

At the end of the expansive account, the regulator essentially said in the letter’s conclusion that the issues were so numerous that they couldn’t all be documented.

They should shut down the production till the problems are resolved!

BTW:
I wonder if people taking RX medications keep up with the recalls. Note how often they happen...
