GranuFlo Injury Attorneys
Protecting Pharmaceutical Injury Victims Across the United States
It is the responsibility of pharmaceutical companies to protect patients and consumers from dangerous side effects caused by their drugs. Unfortunately, too many products are pushed onto the market before sufficient testing has been conducted. It is unethical for companies to prioritize profit over consumer safety. When this happens, victims of pharmaceutical injuries have the right to pursue compensation from at-fault corporations.
One such dangerous medical device is GranuFlo, a dry acid concentrate product produced by Fresenius Medical Care. GranuFlo is used in the dialysis process in clinics around the United States. Unfortunately, it has been linked to an increased risk of cardiac arrest and other heart conditions in patients. Fresenius has been aware of this dangerous situation internally for many years.
This information was not publicly broadcasted, however, and the United States Food and Drug Administration did not receive notice of it, until 2012, when an anonymous informant submitted a copy of a memo that had been circulated within the company in 2011. GranuFlo was consequently pulled in a Class 1 recall by the FDA. Class 1 recalls are the most serious and urgent, denoting an immediate threat to life and health.
