It has recently come to light that around 33,000 boxes of Yaz birth control pills were recalled at a Bayer plant in Germany in November, 2009, over poor manufacturing practices.
Due to the fact that neither the FDA nor Bayer publicized this fact, it was not reported on at all and until this week was unknown to the media.
The recall was found buried deep in an FDA enforcement report from November 25, 2009.
FDA inspectors found “significant deviations” from proper manufacturing standards, including poor quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients, at the drug-maker’s plant in Weimar, Germany.
Bayer was found to be doctoring their test results by the FDA. Investigation found that Bayer was taking out-of-specification test results, diluting them with favorable test results, and then reporting the higher average from this rather than the lower average including poor results.
Bayer has repeatedly show itself to be a company without qualms when it comes to misrepresenting their product, even at the risk of their consumer’s welfare.
