Summary:
An investigation into the 1937 Elixir Sulfanilamide tragedy, the medical disaster that prompted Congress to pass an act requiring all drugs be tested for safety--legislation that remains on the books today. The elixir was the first syrup form of the wonder drug sulfanilamide and was widely distributed for treatment of throat infection. But the main ingredient was a known poison. Over 100 people died as FDA agents scrambled to recover and destroy every last ounce of the drug.
