The FDA has sent St Jude Medical (STJ) a warning about defects at the company's factory in California where it makes heart defibrillators, the wires for which have had no end of problems. The FDA won't authorize new product lines at the facility until the faults have been corrected but it's not seeking any product recalls or a shutdown of operations. St Jude doesn't expect the warning to hurt its earnings.
