We have all found out that several painkiller pills had been contaminated with HIV. However, the popular company Bayer decided to continue selling their product to the public. The New York Times reported that some of the major corporations don’t care about the safety of costumes and they exchange their health for a large sum of money.
33 years ago, the company sold more than 100,000 bottles of their product (worth over $4 million) with the expressed permission of the FDA. And of course, the Food and Drug Administration are those who allowed them to do it.
Fortunately, Bayer Company did not sell the contaminated product in some US states, but they did not hesitate to ship the product internationally in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Argentina.
As a result of this, tens of thousands of people were infected with HIV and thousands of people were killed. Unfortunately, until today there are no legal actions against the Bayer Company, but the health department leaders in Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, and Argentina, were all imprisoned.
Bayer’s public stance on the issue has continued perfectly PR ever since:
Decisions made nearly 2 decades ago were all based on the best scientific statistics of the time and were consistent with the regulations in place.
Obviously, the colluding government regulatory officials at the FDA worked overtime to protect and hide Bayer’s tracks.
According to the New York Times, Dr. Harry M. Meyer, Jr of the FDA advised officials to solve this Bayer problem quietly without informing the public, the medical community, and the Congress.
