FDA and China Drug Companies

My earlier post today on Chinese Drug Contamination - 4 Deaths possible links was eye opening. This NY Times article shows even more:

Key Points:

1. China has 700 Drug Factories exporting to the US.
2. The plant that made Heparin was never inspected by the US FDA, even though it was supposed to when it started production to send to the US.
3. The FDA only inspects 10-20 Chinese Drug plants per year. At this rate it will take 40-50 years.
