From the Boston Globe:
FDA sting targets medicine supplier
The US Food and Drug Administration has completed a sting operation targeting the supplier of Canadian drugs to the City of Springfield's employee insurance program, turning up a case of improperly handled insulin and at the same time infuriating Mayor Michael Albano, who called the FDA's tactics "underhanded."

From USA Today:
Canada's cheap drugs not answer, FDA warns
Cities and states should not encourage people to purchase drugs from other countries, nor should they look to import drugs from places like Canada to relieve their own strapped budgets, the Food and Drug Administration warns.
