I remember hearing about the Cesium incident a ways back.
This "red mercury" thing seems pretty bunkola. Mercury isn't radioactive: The reason it harms a person is because the mercury vapours will embed
themselves in your lungs. Build-up in a body system will kill the body, eventually.
All in all, I think it's just the former Communist bloc's black market attempt to rake in some extra dough: I seriously doubt there will be anything
done about this "red mercury."
