CVS probed in alleged loss of painkillers

 

CVS Caremark Corp. could face as much as $29 million in fines for allegedly losing track of hydrocodone pills at four California stores. They may have been sold on the black market.

Officials at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the California Board of Pharmacy told me Monday that more than 37,000 pills were apparently taken from CVS stores in Modesto, Fairfield, Dixon and Turlock.
Meanwhile, CVS pharmacists in Southern California said they’ve been instructed by the drugstore chain to get their paperwork in order so that no other prescription meds are found to be missing.
