Drug Injury Lawyers Discuss Improper Medication and Medical Device Labeling
April 21st, 2015|
What happens when important safety information is omitted from a drug or medical device label? The drug injury lawyers at Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough explain that, unfortunately, medical product labels may not always carry all the necessary information required by law—which can often lead to injury.
An article from Healthcare Packaging touched on two specific cases where drug manufacturers failed to supply adequate information on a label. And, in one case, even allegedly used packaging sizes to manipulate consumers into buying certain products.
Pfizer, Inc. supposedly placed misleading labels on certain products. This caused consumers receive less information than they were supposed to while boosting sales of items that contained less product than it seemed to hold.
Another article stated Ban, a deodorant manufacturer, is also being sued after research uncovered the company wasn’t supplying consumers with as much product as was printed on the label.
