The headline kinda jumps out at you huh?
Alas it is of no benefit to the thousands harmed by Seroxat.
The line is from a story that appears on Medical News Today
It appears that another counterfeiter has been busted by the Enforcement Team at the MHRA.
A Mr Viraj Shah was sentenced for dealing in counterfeit medicines worth at least 1.8million pounds.
... In June 2006, investigators from the MHRA and the police visited Mr Shah's address where they found a yellow bag in the garage. This bag contained 10 blister packs each containing 14 dark blue and white tablets marked "Reductil", a prescription-only medicine to treat obesity. Samples of the packaging and tablets were analysed and found to be counterfeit.
Mick Deats, Group Manager of Enforcement at the MHRA said, "Anybody engaged in the distribution of counterfeit medicines represents a significant threat to public health, both to individual patients and in undermining the health system. The MHRA will not hesitate to take action against those involved in this serious criminal activity."
Whilst I applaud the MHRA for safeguarding human health I also plead with them to start frying some bigger fish!
Reductil is manufactured by Abbott Laboratories ... they will be pleased!
