(1) The Most Scandalous Case In Pharma: GSK’s Manufacturing Cover Up Puts Millions At Risk Of Harm.

(you can download the evidence from the publicly available site- Pacer- or from here – from Exhibit 25)Exhibit 25

There’s a case brewing in the US (that I have been following attentively), which I think could be one of the most scandalous cover-ups in Big Pharma history. The documents I am about to reveal (all publicly available and downloadable through the Pacer Website) are absolutely damning for GlaxoSmithKline. However the public must be warned because lives are at risk.

The case basically involves a whistle-blower called Thomas Reilly who has taken a  wrongful termination case against GSK. Reilly was head of GSK’s Global IT systems (the computer systems that run GSK’s product manufacturing globally). In 2015- When Reilly tried to warn the CEO at the time- Andrew Witty- that there are serious problems, Witty seemed to brush him off (see excerpts below). If Thomas Reilly’s allegations of serious problems with GSK’s manufacturing are true (and I have no reason to believe that they are untrue, particularly considering the dozens of recalls – that I have documented- of their various products- over the years) then this essentially means that no GSK product can be trusted to be safe.

It also means that many millions of people globally, are at risk, of ingesting either a defective, contaminated, or just shoddily produced GSK product at any time. We are all at risk here, because we all need drugs/treatments from time to time, due to illness or injury etc, and GSK are one of the biggest suppliers of Pharmaceuticals/consumer health products in the world. Even those who work for GSK are at risk (they take meds too), and their family/friends etc are at risk also- because due to their dodgy manufacturing/defunct IT processes within their global supply chain- we simply do not know if a GSK product is ever safe or not (for a long, but not extensive, list – of GSK recalls- see this link)

And see how GSK’s Andrew Witty (CEO at the time- 2005) glibly and nonchalantly dismissed IT Expert (and GSK employee at the time) Thomas Reilly’s serious concerns about GSK’s global manufacturing/IT systems.

Bear in mind, that GSK have had many criminal investigations against them over the past decades, and that they have previously been fined (as a felon) in a 3 Billion lawsuit – instigated by the Department of Justice and Whistle-blower Greg Thorpe in 2012.

They were also fined in China in 2014 for similar damning corruption and fraud allegations.

GSK has a long history of breaking ethics/morals and harming consumers (see the Seroxat and Avandia debacles for a taste of how bad GSK treat users of their products).

We have no reason to trust them in any sense whatsoever.  They have given us absolutely no reason to trust them- ever.

I have documented many dozens of their recalls, from various products – ranging from asbestos contamination, to splinters in toothpaste. (see here)

how many cases like this of bad batches of drugs/products slip through oversight and go unreported? how bad are GSK’s manufacturing processes? and how many people get harmed from using GSK products without even realizing it?

How many Cidra‘s has GSK got?

And why are the authorities allowing them to operate?

(if any  journalists/whistle-blowers are interested in this scandal – please contact me by email)

I will cover more of these publicly available and downloadable documents over the coming days.

This is just the beginning of another GSK scandal; a scandal that illustrates how everyone (across the globe)is at risk of harm from a dodgy GSK product because of their defunct manufacturing cover up.

GSK is no stranger to scandal, and no stranger to harming people with dodgy meds, but the sheer scale of harm to consumers from this current massive cover-up is staggering.
