FDA Inspects wrong plant in China

In an earlier published news in the blog 'Eye on FDA', it reports that FDA Inspects Wrong Plant in China!! This is only last weeks report. Oops!!! During what is not a good week for the FDA, following an announcement by the FDA of allergic reactions to Baxter's Heparin it is revealed in the news that the FDA inspected the wrong Chinese plant that manufactured an ingredient of Heparin. Though there is no link established between the ingredient and the reactions of patients to the Heparin about which the FDA issued an alert, the revelation is sure to shake up agency critics on the Hill, as evidenced by the statement of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., chairwoman of the House Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration Appropriations Subcommittee who likened the FDA with the Keystone Cops in an ABC Evening News piece this week.
And we thought- it happens only in India !
