A statement from the MHRA said it was not recalling the medicines people had at home because, although they had not been manufactured to Good Manufacturing Practice standards, there was no evidence of a patient safety risk from medicines that have been sold in the UK.

However, it said it had to act in the public interest - and poor manufacturing standards could not be allowed to continue.

Import tests
An inspection at the Waluj factory in March found some risk of cross-contamination because of poor cleaning practices, and defects in building fabric and the ventilation systems at the site.

There was also evidence of forged documents relating to staff training records that had been re-written.

so its not like they are breaking new ground, forging qualifications and not following basic procedures..

You can get amazing medicines in India!

Had a spot of the Delhi Belhi. Got given one yellow pill which was guaranteed to kill everything from parasites to bacteria. Did the trick.

Daughter had a nasty infected sore on her face - got given some magic cream (also yellow), and it was gone in two days.

Yellow Indian medicines are good stuff!

India is a major producer of generics (off-patent) drugs, mainly through a company called Ranbaxy. It's not surprising that the odd batch might be dodgy, if its systemic then you'd need to worry.
