It’s the same old song---contaminated drugs from China.  The news was reported by Laurie Burkitt in the Wall Street Journal  on April 17, 2012.  Chinese authorities halted the sale of 13 drugs, because the gelatin capsules used in manufacturing were found to have high levels of the heavy metal chromium.   The affected products included two antibiotics and 11 herbal products.  And as we hear over and over, cost pressures apparently provoked the producer to use industrial grade gelatin instead of food grade gelatin in the manufacture of these capsules.
