GranuFlo Recall Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC Investigating GranuFlo Lawsuits on Behalf of Dialysis Patients Allegedly Injured by GanuFlo or NaturaLyte
Date:8/12/2013

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

The GranuFlo recall lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, an experienced law firm representing the victims of defective drugs, are now evaluating GranuFlo lawsuits relating to the March 2012 GranuFlo and Naturalyte dialysis concentrate recall. GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, both manufactured and marketed by Fresenius Medical Care, were named in a Class I recall by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). A Class I recall is the FDA’s most serious recall and is issued when a medical product poses a risk of serious injury or death.

Dialysis patients or their surviving family members may be eligible to file a GranuFlo lawsuit if they suffered a sudden, serious heart problem during or after a dialysis treatment that involved the administration of GranuFlo or NaturaLyte, including:

  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Cardiopulmonary Arrest
  • Dangerously Low Blood Pressure
  • Sudden Cardiac Death

Wright & Schulte LLC is offering free GranuFlo lawsuit legal consultations to individuals who may be eligible to file a GranuFlo recall claim. For more information on filing a GranuFlo lawsuit, or to arrange for a free GranuFlo lawsuit legal consultation, please visit yourlegalhelp.com.

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are administered during dialysis to neutralize acid in the blood. According to an Urgent Product Notification issued by Fresenius Medical Care in March 2012, both drugs have the potential to cause high levels of bicarbonate in the blood, which can cause dialysis patients to experience metabolic alkalosis. Metabolic alkalosis is associated with the occurrence of sudden, serious heart problems, which can ultimately lead to death. Because of the severity of GranuFlo side effects, the FDA designated the notification a Class I recall.

Court filings show that more than 300 GranuFlo lawsuits have been filed in a federal multidistrict litigation that has been established in U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts for federal personal injury claims stemming from the GranuFlo and NaturaLyte recall. The litigation’s Initial Scheduling Conference will be held on August 30, 2013. Plaintiffs in these GranuFlo lawsuits allege that Fresenius Medical Care was aware of the heart problems associated with the drugs, but concealed those risks from doctors and patients, and continued to aggressively market GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in spite of that knowledge. According to court documents, Fresenius sent a memo to its own dialysis centers in November 2011 warning that GranuFlo had been associated with an increase in incidents of cardiac arrest at Fresenius dialysis clinics in 2010. Doctors were advised to take steps to avoid elevated bicarbonate levels in patients, including adjusting dosage of the drug. However, clinics outside of the Fresenius network were not issued a similar warning until Fresenius announced its Urgent Product Notification March 2012.
