Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. settled fraud allegations made in a whistleblower’s lawsuit that the company sold unsafe drugs while lying about it to U.S. regulators. Ranbaxy admitted in federal court in Baltimore yesterday that it sold batches of drugs that were improperly manufactured, stored and tested. The whistleblower’s lawsuit, filed under the federal False Claims Act, asserted that Ranbaxy defrauded Medicare and Medicaid by charging taxpayers for substandard drugs.  The whistleblower, a former Ranbaxy executive living in New Jersey, will receive $48.6 million from the federal government’s $231.8 million settlement.
