Baxter Recalls Rest of Heparin Products
Date:2/28/2008

Investigation into allergic reactions, deaths related to blood thinner continues

THURSDAY, Feb. 28 (HealthDay News) -- Baxter Healthcare Corp., the pharmaceutical company at the center of recent problems with its blood thinner heparin, announced Thursday that it was recalling any remaining multi-dose vials of the drug as well as single-dose vials.
