Santa Clara, CA: The federal government and some 48 states have reached an agreement with with Qualitest Pharmaceuticals Inc, potentially ending a whistleblower lawsuit alleging unlawful labeling practices on the part of Qualitest.

Qualitest, a subsidiary of Endo Health Solutions, makes generic pharmaceuticals including multivitamins.

They actually did the public a favor by reducing fluoride. No one should ingest fluoride, it's toxic.
