In northern Mexico’s Baja California, 31 pharmacies were suspended for selling medicines irregularly and possibly contaminated with fentanyl, according to the Commission for Protection against Health Risks (Cofepris). The ‘Albatros II’ operation, conducted by Cofepris and the Secretary of the Navy (Semar), resulted in the suspension of activities in 31 pharmacies and the securing of 4,681 boxes of medications. Sampling was also carried out to analyze possible falsifications, adulterations, or presence of fentanyl in the products.

The operation was initiated in response to citizen complaints and aimed to address health irregularities in the region, which receives millions of tourists annually. Cofepris emphasized its commitment to protecting the population from establishments that do not comply with regulations and to prevent the irregular marketing of controlled medications, which can endanger the health and lives of those who use them without proper medical supervision.

These events occurred following discussions between the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, Janet Yellen, and the Mexican economic and financial sector. The meetings focused on joint efforts to combat fentanyl and illicit financing, as well as deepening economic ties between both nations.
