ICP Medical reportedly concealed the Chinese origin of medical supplies and inflated prices. Allegedly, the company obtained products from China that included body bags, gowns, and scrubs, and removed the “Made in China” label from the items and put them in new boxes and added U.S. flag stickers to the packages.
Sourcing goods from China is typically prohibited for government contractors. A contractor can only source goods from the United States or another designated country.
This case was brought forward by a former employee of ICP Medical, under the qui tam or “whistleblower” provisions of the False Claims Act, which permit private individuals to sue on behalf of the government for false claims and to share in any recovery.
Based in St. Louis, Missouri, ICP Medical LLC is an infection control and prevention manufacturer serving hospitals and medical facilities in the United States and worldwide.
