Kidney Dialysis Heart Attack Victims File Lawsuits Following GranuFlo/NaturaLyte Recall By Sarah Pierce
FDA Warnings & Fresenius Recall Lead to Lawsuits
GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are popular dialysis concentrates used by hundreds of thousands of kidney dialysis and hemodialysis patients across the country. In fact, Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) is the largest dialysis services provider in the world, treating more than a third of all Americans on dialysis at its nearly 3,300 U.S. dialysis clinics.
On June 27, 2012, the FDA issued a recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte and launched an investigation into FMC over concerns the company knew as early as 2011 that GranuFlo and NaturaLyte dialysis treatment products had caused 941 deaths at FMC clinics in 2010 alone. Despite receiving hundreds of reports of dialysis patients suffering dangerously low blood pressure, cardiac arrest, heart attack, cardiopulmonary arrest, stroke and even death following kidney dialysis treatment using GranuFlo and/or NaturaLyte, Fresenius concealed this information from consumers, the medical community and federal regulators. It wasn’t until the FDA stepped in that Fresenius was forced to alert the public about the dangerous side effects of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte.
