San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 03, 2012

The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than people who filed a Fentanyl Recall lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.

The US FDA announced on its June 6th, 2012 enforcement report that J&J recalled more than 53,000 Duragesic (Fentanyl Transdermal System) patches because of crystallization. Fentanyl (brand names Duragesic, Onsolis and others) is a potent synthetic narcotic analgesic used to treat breakthrough cancer pain and is commonly used in pre-procedures as a pain reliever as well as an anesthetic. The FDA announcement mentioned as reason for the recall that one lot of Duragesic 25 mcg/h (fentanyl transdermal system) exhibited white spots, which were determined to be small fentanyl crystals.

According to court documents, on January 3rd, 2012, a California man, Jose Campuzano filed a lawsuit (case no 120100086) at the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas alleging that his wife, Charlene Manzo, died as a result of using a Fentanyl pain patch.

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Fentanyl, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Fentanyl remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

On April 18th 2012, the US FDA reminded patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals of the importance of appropriate storage, use, application, and disposal of Fentanyl patches (including Duragesic and generic products) to prevent potential life-threatening harm from accidental exposure to the active ingredient, Fentanyl.
