As Texas Medicine reported in August, the Texas Attorney General's Office and the Texas Medical Board are investigating the use of medical devices and/or pharmaceutical products mislabeled (labeled for use in another country). Several Texas physicians have discovered they purchased and/or used what they believed was an approved device or drug from a vendor not licensed in Texas, only to find that the drug or device had been mislabeled.
TMA is reviewing this issue and in contact with both state agencies. TMA seeks information to help evaluate the problem. If you have encountered this problem, please take this survey.
You may go online to check whether a vendor is licensed to do business in Texas.
