FDA APPROVED? Look At How Many Times Pfizer’s Been Sued


Why would anyone trust the Pfizer corporation?

This is the company which holds the illustrious title of being fined the largest criminal settlement in medical history for both criminal and civil allegations pertaining to fraud.

Just the other day a class action notice came for my sister informing her of a pending lawsuit against Pfizer for an regulatory issue related to its sale of Epi-Pen and Epi-Pen Jr products.

Now the same company is claiming that you should trust them with the rollout of these experimental ‘vaccines’, and those naive to corporate malfeasance see no issue in trusting Pfizer.

I say the numbers in this report paint a very compelling picture of Pfizer as a company which thinks the ends always justify the means.

Just take a look at these stats and reports, and let me know if this is a company worth trusting:

An older report from ABC News highlights:

In the largest health care fraud settlement in history, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer must pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil allegations that the company illegally promoted uses of four of its drugs, including the painkiller Bextra, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

Besides Bextra, the drugs were Geodon, an antipsychotic; Zyvox, an antibiotic; and Lyrica, an anti-epileptic drug. Once the Food and Drug Administration approves drugs, doctors can prescribe them off-label for any use, but makers can’t market them for anything other than approved uses.


Market Realist added:

In 2012, healthcare giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) agreed to pay $3 billion in criminal and civil charges for the unlawful promotion of drugs likePaxil and Wellbutrin for uses that weren’t FDA approved. However, Pfizer still holds the record for receiving the largest criminal fine in history.

Under provisions of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act enacted in 1938, the FDA approves pharmaceuticals for specific uses that a company identifies on its application. After the FDA approves the product as safe and effective for a specified use, a company’s marketing of its drugs must be limited to the FDA-approved use. Uses other than FDA-approved are considered “off-label uses,” and the FDA considers these “misbranded.”
