Q. When I buy plain aspirin there is no country of origin listed. When I call the 1-800 number, I'm promised a reply to this concern but the call is not returned.
Is there any aspirin made in the U.S. with American ingredients?
A. An expose in the New York Times Magazine (Nov. 2, 2008) revealed that there are no major generic aspirin manufacturers in Europe or the U.S. Most aspirin is now made in China.
Many over-the-counter medications as well as prescription drugs now come from manufacturers in China, India or other parts of Asia. If country of origin labeling is important for clothing and food, why wouldn’t it be even more critical for medicine?
