  1. Minh, this petition really should have been included for the United States. Medication label errors are indeed still a problem here in spite of some minimal attempts to clarify packaging. You’re aware of the big issue a couple years ago with heparin vs. heparin lock vials. This occurs with other meds too. Just my 2 cents. Thanks.
