What else has Bard been accused of?

The company’s 2002 application for FDA approval was denied. As a result, Bard hired a regulatory specialist to help enhance their chances of receiving approval when resubmitting their application. The specialist eventually became concerned with safety issues involving the device and was unwilling to support the efforts to resubmit an application for FDA approval.

Despite her objection in supporting Bard’s resubmission efforts, the company still resubmitted an application with her signature on it. The specialist informed an investigative team from NBC news that she never signed the form, thus suggesting that Bard forged a signature to get FDA approval.
