Schering May Sue Over Brazil Product Ban

July 06, 1998|Reuters

German drug company Schering may sue to force the Brazilian government to lift a ban on its products after some placebo birth-control pills used to test packaging methods found their way onto the market. Brazil banned the company from selling its products there after a birth-control mix-up left at least seven women pregnant. The ban follows a probe of Schering's Brazilian operations, which produced 13 million placebos that entered the market, health ministry officials said. Authorities will inspect the plant again Thursday, when they could lift the ban.
