Mylan Is Not Alone: Hinckley Goes Behind the Red Screen

West Virginia public radio has put together a five-minute report on the feud between Mylan Labs and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, including recorded comments from FDA. The crux of the issue: did Post-Gazette reporters "steal" information, or was it handed to them "over the transom." Also at issue is the history of acrimony between the company and the newspaper . . .

Is what happened at Mylan atypical in our industry? Hardly. Chances are that operators at drug plants worldwide regularly override alarm warnings. In our magazine's cover story for September, contributor C. Martin Hinckley goes "Behind the Red Screen" and looks at why they might do so, and what companies can do to minimize the risk.
