What would your reaction be if one day your company that manufactures life-saving drugs is charged with the murder of innocent patients? It would be of utter disbelief but the facts will state clearly that the ingredients were fake which cost the lives of so many people. This is exactly what happened in Panama in 2006. The cough syrup, antihistamine tablets, calamine lotions and rash ointments that the government distributed caused the deaths of 116 people because it contained counterfeit glycerin which is a poisonous chemical. Panama was not free from the effects of this tragedy for three years.
Another shocking discovery was revealed in February 2012 regarding the sale of counterfeit Avastin, a drug used for cancer therapy. The FDA has warned clinics about the entry of these drugs in their organizations and currently it is unknown how many patients have been recommended this drug.

These counterfeit operations are existent in every industry such as food products, luxury items and high-tech products.
