Reimported Cop

Anyone else have a problem with reimported Cop?
The online chemist buys it where it's cheapest, good for him. At the moment it is cheaper if he buys reimports from France. Each syringe has a little sticker on it over the French text, saying the same stuff in German. The little stickers prevent the syringes from fitting properly in the autoinjector sometimes.
Anyway, the first one of these vials got stuck in the injector and shattered, and broke the injector too. They sent me a new one, and I am supposed to scrape off the stickers if it doesn't fit. Seems to be working so far. Has anyone else had this problem, or is it not an issue in the UK?

I read the previous threads, I can add, I warm the syringe in my hand beforehand.
And, obviously I am very pleased with the positive effect of Cop. I never had side-effects, apart from the wasp sting feeling the first few days, and of course the quasi-lymphoma I described below.

I am not aware of reimported copaxone being a factor in the US.

With a generic copaxone allegedly coming (from India) in the next few years perhaps we'll see more of this.
