VeriChip's On-Again Off-Again FDA Approval Apparently On-Again

from the follow-the-trail dept

A few weeks back we wrote about the VeriChip saga (where a company wants to implant chip’s into people for a whole variety of reasons) where it appeared the company twisted the words of the FDA to make it appears as thought they had FDA approval for the device. The FDA turned around and said they never granted such approval and, in fact, they were now investigating the company. Well, the saga continues, as the company is claiming (yet again) that they have FDA approval, though, it’s a little confusing as to whether or not that’s really accurate. In fact, the article suggests that ADS (the company that makes the VeriChip) may have violated the FDA approval already in describing the device as a “medical device” in the press release for the approval. Either way, it does make you wonder why anyone would trust a company with a known history of misleading the public about FDA approvals to implant a hunk of silicon in his or her body.

Hi, well, the verichip, and other chips alike are for safety, health care, etc.,… Ah, Ah, Ah, it is the opposite: you see, now the terrorists and criminals, who are always a step ahead in the tecnology field, will have a mean of knowing exactily where their victims, and worse, their hunters also, are. Than you Verishit company for the increase of insecurity in the society! The president of Verichip-Veryshit rigt now for jail! Who is behind this stupidity( of course tecnology is good when well used)?
