MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — United States Sen. Amy Klobuchar is calling for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the company responsible for producing the EpiPen.
Mylan came under fire last month for hiking the price of the pens by 400 percent.
Klobuchar say Mylan has been ripping off taxpayers through Medicaid and Medicare charges.
“In Minnesota alone, in one year, $4 million that should be paid back to taxpayers,” Sen. Klobuchar said. “That’s one state in one year.”
Klobuchar is also calling on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate Mylan.
