China Bans One Brand Of Herbal Drug After 3 Deaths

From The New York Times:

The Chinese government announced that it had banned the sale and use of one brand of a herbal medicine after three people injected with it died and three others fell seriously ill, revealing a new product safety issue even as the government is grappling with the scandal over tainted milk.

The State Food and Drug Administration posted a warning on its Web site late Wednesday, identifying the problem drug as a preparation of Siberian ginseng made by Wandashan Pharmaceutical, based in northeastern China. The agency said it had discovered two harmful batches of the medicine and urged people across China to report any problems with the product.
