At least a dozen drugmakers with operations in India were accused by the FDA last year of routinely throwing out negative test results of bad batches of pharmaceuticals, some of which eventually made it to U.S. consumers.

Bloomberg scoured FDA records, some obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, and found that failed batch tests designed to check for impurities were often deleted by a technician and then retested and labeled as safe.

According to a November 2013 FDA document, agency computer forensics experts found 5,301 failed chromatography test results that had been deleted at one Sun Pharmaceutical Industries facility alone, Bloomberg said.
