Henry Schein inc.

A company called Levin Communications is editing its Wikipedia pages, presumably as PR-management on behalf of Henry Schein Inc. As pointed out by Wikipedia, Henry Schein Inc has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as the World's Most Ethical Company six times as of 2017,[4] quite an achievement for a pharmaceutical company.

Henry Schein Inc. got dismissed from a 2019 trial alleging Schein and other manufacturers mounted a “false advertising campaign” to expand the market for opioids and Henry Schein and other companies reaped financial rewards by failing “to monitor appropriately and restrict” the drugs’ distribution. Court papers filed by Henry Schein denied that the company “made deliberate efforts to evade restrictions on opioid distribution or acted without regard for life.”[5]

Schein got aquitted by an administrative law judge at the Federal Trade Commission, for accusations of together with 2 other companies, Benco Dental Supply Co and Patterson Companies Inc, having violated antitrust law by refusing to compete for the business of buying groups. The FTC had accused the three companies, the three largest U.S. full-service distributors of dental supplies ranging from chairs to cement to gloves, of violating antitrust law in February 2018.[6]
