Counterfeit Botox

I’m sorry. I never knew there was such a thing as counterfeit botox.

From WaPo:

Public health agencies are warning that counterfeit versions of Botox have been found in several states and are believed to be linked to at least 19 people reporting botulism-like illness after receiving the injections for cosmetic purposes.

The Food and Drug Administration’s counterfeit alert Tuesday comes on the heels of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcing a multistate investigation into reported illnesses across nine states from patients given Botox injections in nonmedical settings or from untrained or unlicensed practitioners.

In several cases, patients received injections with “counterfeit products or products with unverified sources,” the CDC said.
