I'm not buying the book!
https://www.npr.org/sections/health-sho ... -you-think
If the FDA suspects a Chinese generic, a more effective way than inspecting plants is to spot check more samples from the US distributor or buy samples from stores.

There appear to be no examples, just "...people on maintenance medications who are taking these drugs day in and day out. Those drugs may have toxic impurities. Those can build up in your liver, you may not know it, or you may be having side effects that you didn't think about before, and then you realize, "Wait a second I was switched to a different generic" or "I was switched from a brand to a generic."

That was all speculation.

If the journalist had money to fly to China, it would have been better spent getting drugs here and sending them to an analytical lab here. Each drug at approved stage has a known impurity profile.

If you take an injectable drug, the risk in generics is greater. Even sealed ampules get bacterial growth.

One area where generics fail is 12 hour formulas. The tablet does not dissolve at the slow rate. Some drugs also a pressed too hard to pills and take longer to dissolve in your gut. They all would have the right amount of drug per pill.

Teva makes a good portion of your generics.
