Head of Korean subsidiary of UK firm Oxy apologizes for poisonous humidifier disinfectant which killed 100
The head of a Korean subsidiary of a British consumer goods company was slapped and shouted down on Monday as he apologised for his firm's role in selling a humidifier disinfectant blamed for more than 100 deaths in South Korea. Shouting "too late" and "cannot forgive" in English, a handful of the victims' relatives rushed the podium where Atar Safdar, the head of Oxy Reckitt Benckiser Korea, was speaking at a hotel in Seoul. The executive was slapped and pushed several times as the event descended into chaos.

The case came to light after four pregnant women died of lung problems for unknown reasons in 2011. A subsequent government probe found a "significant association" between lung damage and products used to sterilise domestic humidifiers. Most of the victims were found to have used Oxy Ssak Ssak, a liquid humidifier disinfectant sold by Reckitt Benckiser (Xetra: A0M1W6 - news) in South Korea from 2001, that has been blamed for around 103 deaths -- mostly women and children.

It's a crime deserving of the death penalty.

What a tragedy!

Reckitt Benckiser's global brands include Dettol antiseptic wash and Durex condoms.

On 27 August 2011, RB recalled all remaining stock of its major analgesic product, Nurofen Plus, after packs were found to contain an antipsychotic drug.

In April 2011, Bart Becht announced he was to retire as CEO of Reckitt Benckiser and would be replaced from September 2011 by executive vice president of Category Development, Rakesh Kapoor.

Gaviscon contains aluminium, which has also be implicated in Alzheimer's by some researchers, so that could explain the link.
