The Ministry of National Defence (MApN) announced on Wednesday it will no longer use disinfectants produced by Hexi Pharma, used for medical services in the theatres of operations in the past 10 years.
The products had been legally authorized for marketing and procured under a centralized system for medical units in the ministry’s medical network, the MApN stated in a media release.
Hexi Pharma biocides were found nonconforming by several tests, following media reports; inquiries of governmental control bodies are in progress; also, a criminal investigation has been opened on the matter; the health ministry resigned on this scandal, and Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos personally took over his office. The MApN mentions “possible defects” of the company’s products as the reasons for its decision.
