    Default What kills me is the insert about dangerous medicines

    I am currently on the blood pressure medicine Valsartan that has been recalled (due to the coating containing carcinogens) My son brought my unopened bottle to the pharmacy here in the US for a refund, which I was told to do. Luckily I had some old bottles of the same, different manufacturer, when I looked at where the manufacturer was --- it was INDIA, not the USA. Still waiting for Doctor to call pharmacy for a replacement. So it is dangerous for us to import, but the drug companies here do it.

    Yipes!

    FWIW, yesterday I was shopping online for a bit of tech doohicky, and it had a big yellow carcinogen warning on the product page - bought it anyway. Not like I’m going to touch it any long that it takes to nail it up in the network closet.

    A little off topic, but did you know there are several products that you can purchase in the USA that are illegal to manufacture? Microfiber is one of those. The amounts of chemicals it takes to produce the plush fabric contains carcinogens and carries with it numerous EPA violations. China has no issues subjecting their air and employees to these risks. Of course we pay very little for this fabric, but by purchasing you are directly contributing to environmental damage and people's health. Back to the OP, the sad part about that is, in order for them to admit a coating was a carcinogen and issue a recall, means a group of people had to come up with cancer. Basically stuff gets mfg all the time, and until it hurts someone no one cares. Is capitalism to blame here? Is the US government responsible? Are the doctors responsible for prescribing it? I don't know who is to blame, but I do wish average people didn't have to be the group who suffer thanks to someone trying to make a buck.

    Counting on someone else for your happiness is a recipe for premeditated disappointment.

    my favorite with all the recalls especially food, they say just throw it away. uh, maybe if they had to refund it all they'd be more diligent with safety!

    Wow! I had no idea about microfiber! I'm off to go Google it. Thank you so much for the heads up!
