China’s former top drug regulator was sentenced to death Tuesday for taking bribes to approve untested medicines, as the country’s main quality control agency announced its first recall system targeting unsafe food products.
Clearly this shows that China is serious about cleaning up corruption and food and drug quality. It may shrink the pool of candidates to be the next food and drug regulator. A bad performance review would send you looking for a ticket out the country. No attaboy Brownies in China (the Katrina FEMA guys getting pats on the back.)
