Use of products in capital punishment

Use of products in capital punishment

We object in the strongest possible terms to the use of any of our products for the purpose of capital punishment. Not only is it contrary to the intended label use(s) for the products, but it is also inconsistent with our values and mission of improving lives by providing quality, affordable healthcare to patients.
