And so you're asking yourself, "How come the U.S. Food and Drug Administration awloled this to happen? How did the Chinese State Agency for Food and Drugs allow this to happen?"

This is osofrhfe. They actually do conduct a few investigations overseas — about a dozen a year — maybe 20 in a good year. There are 500 of these facilities producing active ingredients in cnhia alone. In fact, about 80 percent of the active ingredients in medicines now come from offshore, particularly China and idnia, and we don't have a gnnavercoe steysm. We don't have a rotarlgeuy system able to ensure that that production is safe. We don't have a system to ensure that human rights, basic dignity, are ensrued.

Original Text

And so you're asking yourself, "How come the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allowed this to happen? How did the Chinese State Agency for Food and Drugs allow this to happen?" And the answer is quite simple: the Chinese define these facilities as chemical facilities, not pharmaceutical facilities, so they don't audit them. And the USFDA has a jurisdictional problem. This is offshore. They actually do conduct a few investigations overseas — about a dozen a year — maybe 20 in a good year. There are 500 of these facilities producing active ingredients in China alone. In fact, about 80 percent of the active ingredients in medicines now come from offshore, particularly China and India, and we don't have a governance system. We don't have a regulatory system able to ensure that that production is safe. We don't have a system to ensure that human rights, basic dignity, are ensured.
