Michael Jackson's bankrupt former dermatologist Dr. Arnie Klein -- who supposedly gave the singer truckloads of drugs -- has now been named in another sprawling drug controversy, this time involving potentially dangerous Botox imported from foreign countries.

Imported Botox? How chic-sounding ...

According to TMZ, the FDA has issued a notification to more than 350 medical practices across the U.S., telling them they may have received unapproved meds, including Botox, from a foreign supplier. Klein happens to be one of the doctors on the list.

The suppliers in question are owned and operated by a company called Canada Drugs, though it's unclear where the drugs are manufactured.

Uh ... Canada?

According to the FDA, "These medications may be counterfeit, contaminated, improperly stored and transported, ineffective, and/or unsafe."

The notice continues, "Medical practices that purchase and administer illegal and unapproved medications from foreign sources are placing patients at risk."
