$1:
Authorities believe that the outbreak strain was brought into the country in the contaminated eye drops, which were manufactured by Global Pharma, a Chennai, India-based manufacturer. The Food and Drug Administration reports that it has had a slew of manufacturing violations. The eye drops were imported into the country by Aru Pharma Inc. and then branded and sold by EzriCare and Delsam Pharma. The products were available nationwide via Amazon, Walmart, eBay, and other retailers.

So the company had "...a slew of manufacturing violations", the importers didn't care because it was probably the cheapest option and the governments didn't care because as Caleb pointed out, "freedom".

Maker of eye drops linked to deadly outbreak flunks FDA inspection

$1:
The facility, it seemed, was primed to produce contaminated products. FDA inspectors noted that Global Pharma didn't verify that components of the solutions, bought from suppliers, were sterile to begin with. And the areas of the facility where the solution was supposed to be made aseptically—contamination-free—weren't fit for producing sterile products. That is, the walls, ceilings, and floors were not smooth, hard surfaces that could be readily sterilized as they should be. Instead, there were cracks, protruding nails, and holes in the wall. But, even if the area was cleanable, the company's protocols for cleaning were also deficient, the report noted.

FDA inspectors noted problems with cleaning and maintenance of machinery, which could have led to cross-contamination from other products manufactured in the facility. On the second inspection day, an inspector also noted a "black, brown colored greasy deposit" on parts of the filling machine, and the facility's equipment logbook noted that it hadn't been cleaned in nearly a month. A few days later, a manager told the inspector that there was "no procedure for cleaning" the filling machine.
