Manufacturer has dozens of drug recalls in the past 2 years

Most Houston residents will take medication at one point in their lives. Many Houston residents will take several. These medications are important for people to help them feel better and maintain their active lifestyle. A drug recall can be scary for patients who take the recalled medication. Recalled medications can cause very serious side effects and even death. Drug manufacturers have the obligation to make sure their medication is safe and effective for consumers. Occasionally, an unsafe drug is released that has the potential to harm consumers.

One drug manufacturer has emerged in recent years as a company with dozens of drug recalls. In just the past two years, the company had 40 recalls of its products. In 2014, there were 45 class I recalls. A class I recall is the most severe recall and means that there is a reasonable probability that the drug will cause serious side effects or death. Of these 45 recalls, Hospira had 14 of their drugs included. Of their class I recalled drugs, some included common drugs, including Heparin and Propofol.

Drug patients have the right to safe medication. When a drug manufacturer has so many recalled drugs, it can lead to consumers wondering if any of their medication is safe. Hospira has received FDA warning letters at four of its plants and problems have been found in inspections made at two more.

Consumers who have been affected by an unsafe drug can face many unexpected side effects. A legal professional skilled in drugs and medical devices can help a victim determine if they have been injured by an unsafe drug. Compensation may be available for pain and suffering, medical expenses and other damages.
