Prescription drugs can be contaminated just like our food and water. Water goes through a filtration process before it is delivered to our homes. Food must be cleaned and thoroughly sanitized before it is packaged and sold in restaurants and grocery stores. If our food or water is contaminated we become sick and die. The sanitation process protects us and holds the food manufacturers liable for their errors.
Just like our food and water, prescription drugs can be contaminated. Drugs are produced in laboratories through sophisticated chemical processes. The drugs are then packaged and shipped for sale. If during this production or packaging process a batch of drugs is contaminated people can become sick and die. Drug companies are responsible for ensuring that proper safety precautions are taken when producing and packaging their drugs. Failure to adhere to strict safety guidelines makes the pharmaceutical company liable for any deaths or injuries resulting from their negligence.
