    Alright, why the heck are they declining to name the company? I would be asking the anesthesiologist where they got my medicine from if I knew there was a possibility of a bad batch!! That is criminal!!

    The real shocking part will come when we find out who knew about the possibillity of contamination,but kept thier mouth shut to save their own butt.

    So far all they seem to know is that it was distributed for 5-7 months without a source of mold being noticed.

    That's too incredible to believe.

    Sounds like the manufacturers' sterilirty processes are/were lacking! Such a shame for the trusting folks who administered and received the drug!
