[2] I was WRONG!

"In 1867, the Mallinckrodt brothers, Gustav, Otto and Edward, founded G. Mallinckrodt & Co. in St. Louis, Missouri. The Mallinckrodt family had immigrated from Germany, and Otto and Edward both returned to Germany (leader in Chem at the time) for adv. training."
[3] "Mallinckrodt Chemical Works was incorporated 15 years later. By1898, the company had established itself as a pharmaceuticals supplier and in 1913 became the first to introduce barium sulfate as a contrast medium for x-rays."

[4] The current Mallinckrodt CEO is "Mark (or Marc) Trudeau". Looks like a relative of Justin but I'd have to look.

Career break came with DuPont.
[5] and here we see Mallinckrodt basically admitting that that they allowed massive numbers of suspicious order of opioids to be made ... shut down by #JeffSessions
