Your government at work...covering up for Chinese criminals.
"WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration is withholding a list of Chinese heparin suppliers requested by congressional investigators looking into problems with tainted supplies of the blood thinner, saying confidentiality agreements prevent release of the companies' names."
"Mr. Stupak's House subcommittee is investigating the circumstances surrounding at least 81 deaths in the U.S. linked to tainted heparin derived from Chinese raw materials. The FDA has said it doesn't yet know how or when the contaminated ingredient, oversulfated chondroitin sulfate, was put into the supply. Agency officials have indicated that it was likely a deliberate act, possibly to stretch the supply of a profitable export."
