Florida Department of Health

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has filed a workplace safety complaint with the Florida Department of Health, accusing a South Florida-based company of not doing enough to protect its adult film actors, News Service of Florida reports. After successfully lobbying for a California law that mandates condom use in adult films, the group says the adult film industry is moving production to Florida, a state without such a law. This puts performers at a heightened risk for sexually transmitted diseases, the complaint says.

A Florida Department of Health report that became public on Friday ordered the suspension of a Boca Raton compounding pharmacy because it  “constitutes an immediate, serious danger” to the public.

Conditions at Rejuvi Pharmaceuticals Inc. were so “deplorable” when a state inspector arrived on Oct. 12 that nothing short of an immediate shut-down would suffice, the DOH report said.

Other than timing, there is no apparent connection between the DOH action in Florida and an ongoing outbreak of illness attributed to a compounding pharmacy in Massachusetts.
