SPOTLIGHT: Contamination prompts Ransom recalls

Potential recalls are dragging down UK-based drug maker William Ransom. Government inspectors found bacterial contamination in the water supply Ransom used to make various products at a factory in Essex, England. Eight of the products were manufactured on contract for other healthcare companies. Three others were Ransom-branded products: Radian, a muscle rub; Valderma, an antibacterial cream; and Pavacol, a cough suppressant. Regulators suspended the plant's license for three months. Report
