Correction: No “Charges” Against Former FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg


Our headline on an Around the Web item posted on June 8 stating that the former head of the FDA, Margaret Hamburg, had been “charged” with conspiracy and racketeering was in error. The wording “charged” implies a criminal case, which indicates that prosecutors believe there is evidence to support such allegations. A civil lawsuit in federal court was filed against Hamburg alleging such behavior;  such civil actions can be filed regardless of their possible merits. MIA regrets the error.
