  • Pharma whistleblower: Consumers must question medicines quality

The one person who can be credited with for being the first to bring into focus poor manufacturing practices is Dinesh Thakur, a former Ranbaxy executive who turned whistleblower against his employer and led to the company's imports being barred by the US FDA.

  • McDonald's probes copycat burger joint in separatist east Ukraine

    By Anton Zverev and Maria Kiselyova MOSCOW (Reuters) - The McDonald's fast food chain said its lawyers were investigating after entrepreneurs in separatist-controlled eastern Ukraine started selling McDonald's-style hamburgers out of a restaurant that the company shut down two years ago. The company said it pulled out of the Ukrainian city of Luhansk in May 2014 for security reasons after pro-Russian insurgents mounted an armed uprising there against Kiev's rule, and unilaterally declared the region's independence. Photographs sent to Reuters by a witness on Friday showed the restaurant was now open and selling fries and burgers that look similar to those served in McDonald's restaurants worldwide.
