  • High blood pressure is not the only medication contaminated in recent years; since 2013, 8,000 different medications have been recalled, some not until after they caused serious harm or death
  • An investigative journalist from Kaiser Health Network found evidence in FDA documents that inspectors of drug factories were missing serious hazards, in part as a result of factories being tipped off before a "surprise" visit, being stopped at the door by plant employees and relying on translators paid for by the drug companies
