GranuFlo Lawsuits Mount, as Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Consolidated Litigation for GranuFlo Recall Claims Filed in Massachusetts State Court
Date:9/10/2013

v/medicaldevices/safety/listofrecalls/ucm309990.htm" onclick="linkClick(this.href)" rel="nofollow">U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) deemed the notification a Class I GranuFlo recall, a designation that is only granted when a medical product poses a significant risk of serious injury or death.

According to a New York Times report published in June 2012, the FDA launched an investigation of Fresenius Medical Care shortly after the GranuFlo recall was announced, after learning that the company had issued a memo in November 2011 to its own clinics that warned of the heart risks associated with GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. Among other things, the agency advised doctors to adjust their dosage to avoid these dangers.*

Since the announcement of the GranuFlo recall, court records indicate that hundreds of plaintiffs
have filed lawsuits against Fresenius Medical Care that claim the company failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the use of the products, and assert that the company continued to aggressively market GranuFlo and NaturaLyte even after the company became aware of their dangers. In addition to the newly-established litigation in Massachusetts State Court, at least 300 federally-filed GranuFlo lawsuits are pending in a multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts. (In re Fresenius GranuFlo/Naturalyte Dialysate Litigation, MDL No. 2428) According to the Order issued on September 3rd in Middlesex County Superior Court, Judge Kirpalani has directed the parties in the state proceeding to coordinate with the federal multidistrict litigation.

Dialysis patients who suffered sudden and serious heart problems within 72 hours of a dialysis treatment with GranuFlo or NaturaLyte may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other damages. Learn M
