Arrests have been made in association to with the deaths. The drug was meant to treat liver and gastric disorders, as well as gall bladder. An investigation into the incident has been ordered, and a safety review of drug firms will be launched.

  How can they  
 
be fake ingredients?? I understand the story, but the phrasing fake ingredients seems like an oxymoron, i mean, if they are in the recipe, then they are the ingredients...

Ok what don't you get? It says "adding toxic ingredients instead of the proper, expected chemicals" So it wasn't the real ingredients it was therefore "fake"

Seriously, you don't understand? When a receipe calls for one ingredient and you substitute a different ingredient for it while maintaining that you followed the receipe, you are billing the substituted ingredient as the original ingredient - therefore you have a "fake" ingredient. You haven't followed the receipe - you've used a different receipe while claiming that it is the same receipe.

  eh..  
 
I don't think "fake" is the best word either...

  yeah  
 
Fake is a bad word choice. Saying it's fake makes it sound like it was a placebo that killed people...
