WHO Warns Against 4 Indian Cough Syrups

New Delhi: The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued an alert for four ‘contaminated’ drugs manufactured by an Indian pharmaceutical company. This has been potentially linked to multiple kidney problems and the death of 66 children in Gambia.

“Four cough and cold syrups manufactured by Maiden Pharmaceuticals Limited in India. WHO will renegotiate this with the relevant companies and regulatory authorities in India,” WHO Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters on Wednesday.

If government sources are anything to go by, CDSCO has taken up the issue and directed a detailed probe against the cough and cold syrups produced and exported to The Gambia by Maiden Pharmaceuticals Limited — based in Haryana’s Sonepat — on the basis of available information shared by WHO.

“The CDSCO, while responding to WHO, within an hour-and-a-half, took up the matter immediately thereafter with the concerned State Regulatory Authority, under whose jurisdiction the drug manufacturing unit is located. Further, a detailed investigation was launched to ascertain the facts or details in the matter in collaboration with State Drugs Controller, Haryana (the concerned State Drug Control Authority),” the Indian government said via a statement on Thursday.
