What would you have the FDA do in regards to independent pharmacies compounding? I'm not sure you completely understand the role of the FDA considering your next sentence.
Well the acts committed by the Massachusetts pharmacy were less like an independent pharmacy and more like a manufacturer. That's the problem. They don't have enough regulations regarding that matter to ensure the safety of patients involved in mass production in a compounding pharmacy. Something like 17,000 vials of the spinal injection were produced by the company. Doesn't sound like an "independent pharmacy" to me. But that's a conversation for a different day lol.
