The National Plaintiff’s Law Firm of Baron and Budd Handling Granuflo Recall Lawsuits
Date:5/8/2013

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

The National Plaintiff’s Law Firm of Baron and Budd is now handling lawsuits pertaining to the recall of Granuflo, the brand name of a dialysate (http://www.fda.gov/medicaldevices/safety/listofrecalls/ucm309990.htm
). Dialysate is used when a patient undergoes dialysis, a long-term medical treatment used to treat kidney conditions. Granuflo has been known to allegedly cause various health issues including heart attack and stroke. The Granuflo lawyers at Baron and Budd are currently working to aid patients and families that have allegedly endured significant health issues after using Granuflo (IN RE: FRESENIUS GRANUFLO/NATURALYTE. DIALYSATE PRODUCTS LIABILITY LITIGATION. MDL No. 2428, Dist. Of Mass).

“It is Baron and Budd’s mission to uncover the facts that manufacturers don’t want their customers to know,” said Russell Budd, co-founder and managing shareholder of Baron and Budd. "When important research uncovers dangerous side effects, that research should immediately be made public."

According a New York Times article dated June 15, 2012, Fresenius Medical Care is the manufacturer of Granuflo and the world’s largest producer of products and services for kidney dialysis. More than one-third of the over 400,000 Americans who undergo dialysis treatments go to Fresenius clinics each year.

The New York Times also reported that the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) issued a Granuflo a recall on March 29, 2012 to change the drug’s prescribing instructions. The recall said that the use of Granuflo could potentially lead to significant heart problems in patients, such as low blood pressure and cardiac arrhythmia. However, Fresenius allegedly knew that the product could harm patients as early as November 2011, according to an internal company memo.
