According to the Corporate Whistleblower Center, a recent lawsuit involving the Department of Justice alleged that numerous ammunition lots failed to pass government specifications. “Unfortunately these instances are not uncommon,” says a representative from the Corporate Whistleblower Center. “If you work for a defense contractor or manufacturer of ammunition or weapons that provides defective products for the government, please contact us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain the whistleblower reward program to you.”
The lawsuit referenced by the Corporate Whistleblower Center occurred when a whistleblower provided proof that Federal Cartridge, Co. allegedly shipped defective bullets to the Department of Homeland Security. An estimated 30 to 40 percent of the ammunition did not pass inspections, but allegedly were still distributed to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers all over the United States. These defective rounds allegedly had a number of issues which caused them to stick in gun barrels and damage guns. While no settlement has been reached yet, the contract for the ammunition was worth $90 million. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
“Not only are these allegations a gross abuse of taxpayer dollars, but—what’s even worse—they put the safety of the men and women who serve and protect our country at risk,” says the Corporate Whistleblower Center. “If you have proof an ammunition or weapons contractor is providing defective products to the government, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466, so we can explain federal whistleblower programs to you.” All calls are kept confidential. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
