Nurofen fined 6m for misl카지노 사이트eading consumer protection commissioner
Nurofen and its distributors have been fined nearly £15m for failing to tell consumers of their claims about drug-related side effects or their potential harm, it was announced on Wednesday.
The Department of Health ordered the drug, marketed as Nurofen Ozone, and the UK arm of its joint venture, Ozone Pharma, to pay £15m in penalties for their roles in the sale of dangerous drug Nurofen-containing products for prescription, but the fine does not include the costs the companies are facing for failing to comply with the regulation, which requires them to report all side effects on product labels to the National Health Service.
The health department said in a statement that the penalties were imposed “based on an assessment of Nurofen’s role in misleading consumers”. They우리카지노 could be increased or waived if Nurofen proves it has changed its sales practices “in the interim”.

Cold-loading is also known as “cathleoblastogen”, and some British-users claim it causes them to get more seriously ill. The department says Nurofen has been found to be one of the first drugs to “cold load” – the word is derived from the word “load” – and there is no scientific evidence of cold-loading or any link between a user’s reaction and their health.
The department said: “Nurofen’s cold-loading practice creates a dangerous r더킹카지노isk to patients with an unauthorised cold-loading process. If you do not have your personal doctor’s note prepared for the sale of cold-loaded drugs, or if your doctor ha
