PetSmart and Petco announced they are halting the sale of Chinese-made dog treats after the US FDA linked over a 1,000 pet deaths to tainted jerky.
This should be seen as a major warning to both China and India. Failure to adequately patrol the quality of manufacturing and production can blackball an entire country or industry.
Are the Indian and Chinese pharmaceutical industries next in line to face a ban?
This is no small question.
These two countries combined make about than half of the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients that go into generic and branded drugs in this country. A movement to ban their use or import could devastate an economic engine in those two countries.
Or 危险危险 and खतरे का खतरा, if you prefer.
