FDA Stops Imports of Ranbaxy Products
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is stopping the import of several drug products produced by the generic drug manufacturer Ranbaxy Laboratories, Ltd.  The FDA is concerned that Ranbaxy facilities in India are not following U.S. standards for good manufacturing practices.  Although simvastatin is one of the medications manufactured by Ranbaxy, drug shortages are not expected because, in most instances, there are enough other suppliers that can help meet demand for simvastatin.
