Owner of Framingham drug firm faulted
US House panel cites a lack of cooperation
Pharmacist Barry Cadden, co-owner of the Framingham pharmacy blamed for the deadly national meningitis outbreak, has a long history of not cooperating with federal regulators, including one 2004 inspection when he initially denied having an eye medication that was the subject of a complaint, according to a memo released Monday by a Congressional committee. An inspector later spotted a drawer labeled with the drug’s name and asked Cadden to open it. Inside were 189 vials.
