Read the full article:  Modern Healthcare - AmerisourceBergen to pay $625M in drug distribution settlement

"In order to avoid the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory oversight, AmerisourceBergen did not register Medical Initiatives as a repackager or manufacturer with the agency, records show. Instead, the group portrayed Medical Initiatives as a state-regulated pharmacy, exploiting an exemption to the FDA registration requirement that is reserved for legitimate pharmacies, not for manufacturers or repackagers, authorities said."
