    Either in assembled version or containing imported ingredients.
    From about 600 factories in China and about 300 in India, with a scattering of factories in other countries.
    Less than 1% is inspected by the FDA.

    That is all.

    No one cares about the safety of our prescription medications?

    Ghanja ( not imported) cures most of my ailments.

    Not surprising. There's a lot of chemical plants in those countries.

    So you all can quit whining about US Pharmaceutical Companies since obviously they do not set the prices.
