We Help Victims of GranuFlo® and NaturaLyte®
In 2011, Fresenius Medical Care published an internal memo stating the company was aware of a six-fold increase in the risk of heart attacks in patients whose kidney dialysis machines used GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. Despite these dangers, Fresenius didn’t recall the products until the memo was leaked to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). After an investigation, the FDA announced a Class I Recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte products in 2012.
By continuing the use of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in kidney dialysis machines, countless victims may have been injured or killed because of Fresenius Medical Care’s negligence. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, our GranuFlo injury lawyers are dedicated to holding negligent drug and product manufacturers like Fresenius Medical Care accountable for the injuries they caused to innocent victims.
