Baxter (NYSE: BAX) is probably retaining more lawyers. So far nineteen people have died from tainted Heparin, a blood-thinner. BAX is one of the largest marketers of the drug.

The ingredients which cause the health problems appear to be made in China.

The question is why Baxter did not have closer look at a medicine used in heart surgery and dialysis.
