During the 1960s the pharmaceuticals division of the Distillers Company distributed thalidomide throughout the United Kingdom. Pregnant women taking the drug began to produce babies with deformities including stunted arms and legs. The drug was withdrawn in 1961. Diageo has finalized a $150 million (GBP) financial settlement with Thalidomide Trust's National Advisory Council and Thalidomide UK set up for those affected by the drug. (Dec-08-05) [FORBES]
