South Carolina lawmaker accused of misbranding stem cells


A freshman South Carolina lawmaker is facing federal charges over the mislabeling of stem cells.

Court records show that 31-year-old Rep. Stephen Goldfinch Jr. was charged Tuesday with one count of misbranded drugs.

Federal prosecutors say the Murrells Inlet Republican owned Caledonia Consulting, a Mount Pleasant company that harvests and processes stem cells from umbilical cord blood.

The government says that between April 2006 and December 2008, Caledonia sold stem cells to a Texas man who performed unapproved procedures involving stem cells.


A contractor working for Goldfinch has previously pleaded guilty to selling the mislabeled stem cells. Goldfinch told The Associated Press on Wednesday he accepted responsibility for the contractor's actions and expected to plead guilty at a later date.
