What is GranuFlo?
In a healthy individual, kidneys filter waste, toxins and salt out of the blood. Patients who suffer from kidney problems may have to undergo dialysis in which their blood is filtered through an external machine (dialyzer). GranuFlo is one of the chemicals typically used during dialysis to remove impurities from the blood.
Recently, the FDA issued a class I recall of GranuFlo and Naturalyte. Although this recall will not result in a removal of the products from the market, it raises many red flags. According to the FDA, a Class I recall signifies that “a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.”
Why was GranuFlo recalled?
GranuFlo was recalled after patients began suffering from cardiac arrest and strokes. Eventually, a Fresenius memo was leaked that showed the dialysis company was aware of issues with the drug. The problem was traced to a bicarbonate overdose. If you or a loved one has sustained unnecessary injury because of GranuFlo, our attorneys are ready to take your products liability case. Having decades of experience handling medical malpractice cases and defective product matters, our legal team is fully qualified to assist you with obtaining compensation.
