FDA and GSK on the Hunt for Stolen Drugs

We typically don’t get emails from FDA  asking for information about stolen goods with massive bold letters, but that’s what just came into our inbox. Looks like a transport truck containing a mix of GlaxoSmithKline’s pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medications was jacked in Puerto Rico on January 29, and the feds are looking to the general public for any information. It’s curious that it took more than three weeks to announce the news. No word on whether the theft was just now discovered, or if they are reaching out to us because all other leads have run dry.

Below is a list of the stolen drugs. Please contact 1-800-551-3989 if you have any information about this incident.

    One other thing is that an online business administration training is designed for students to be able to without problems proceed to bachelor’s degree courses. The Ninety credit education meets the other bachelor diploma requirements and once you earn your associate of arts in BA online, you will get access to the newest technologies on this field. Several reasons why students need to get their associate degree in business is because they are interested in the field and want to have the general training necessary before jumping in to a bachelor education program. Thanks for the tips you actually provide within your blog.
