Glaxo Pays $750 Million Fine for Tainted Products

From the New York Times:

Regulators say the company for years knowingly sold tainted baby ointment and an ineffective antidepressant.

If they can afford to pay this fine, imagine how much they are making!

About martisima

After over 50 years of teaching literature to undergraduate and graduate students, I feel I have earned my retirement (it happened when I was 72, five years ago). I do miss the classroom, however, but not the meetings and all other requirements of the profession. I love teaching, and wish I could still do it. But now I read for pleasure, and watch films, and listen to all kinds of music (no TV, though). I love to travel, and hope I can resume doing it soon. I need to get over my health issues caused by thyroid surgery three years ago!

  1. $750 million is much too small a fine for this.
