Stolen Pharmaceutical Products from GlaxoSmithKline - Addendum

 

FDA posts press releases and other notices from firms as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties.

 

GlaxoSmithKline experienced a cargo theft at approximately 7:30 AM on Friday, January 29, 2010, in the Bayamon district of Puerto Rico.  Two armed men overpowered the vehicle driver and hijacked a portion of the load containing GSK Pharmaceuticals that was in transit from the Contract Distribution Center, Cesar Castillo.  GSK is working with U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations and the Atlanta District Office (FDA), and other law enforcement officials to recover the product that was stolen.
