Antipsychotic Contamination Linked to Chinese Factory

While there are certainly growing problems with drug contamination around North America, this brief Canadian Press story is one of relatively few mainstream articles I’ve seen that explicitly names three companies and links them to manufacturers in China. This situation identifies antibiotics getting mixed accidentally with antipsychotics, but we can be sure that many of the increasing number of drug contamination and purity problems we’ve been seeing in recent years are likely linked to drug companies being increasingly drawn to the cheap labour and unregulated environment of Chinese manufacturing.
