Recall Issued on Naturalyte and GranuFlo Dialysis Products
Ennis & Ennis, P.A. Announces Free Nationwide Consultations for Patients Affected by Fresenius’ Naturalyte and GranuFlo Recall
(PRWEB) July 18, 2012
On June 27, 2012, the FDA issued a recall for Fresenius Medical Care North America’s dialysis products, Naturalyte Liquid Acid Concentrate and Naturalyte GranuFlo (powder) Acid Concentrate, due to a risk of potentially fatal serum bicarbonate levels. Naturalyte Liquid and Naturalyte GranuFlo are dialysis products.
On November 4, 2011, Fresenius sent an internal memo to doctors in the company´s dialysis centers informing of the risk and noted that 941 hemodialysis patients using the company´s products experienced cardiac arrest in 2010. However, Fresenius failed to inform the FDA and other facilities that used the product. It wasn´t until March 2012, when the FDA received an anonymous copy of the November internal memo, that other facilities became aware of this fatal danger.
If you have a loved one who suffered a cardiovascular event while or shortly after receiving dialysis with Naturalyte Liquid or Naturalyte GranuFlo products, contact the lawyers of Ennis & Ennis, P.A. today for a free nationwide confidential consultation by calling toll free 1-800-856-6405 or by completing an online case evaluation form.
