Patients who have experienced side effects such as heart attack, stroke, or cardiac arrest from GranuFlo and NaturaLyte acid concentrates should consider contacting a dialysis lawyer to determine if they are eligible to file a lawsuit against Fresenius Medical Care (FMC).
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a recall of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in March 2012 after FMC sent an internal memo to Fresenius-owned dialysis centers stating that the acid concentrates could increase the risk of cardiac arrest, stroke and heart attack among patients with elevated bicarbonate levels. The manufacturer did not offer the same warning to thousands of other physicians and dialysis clinics not owned by FMC.
Fresenius Medical Care is expected to face thousands of lawsuits from dialysis patients that have been harmed by their acid concentrates. Speaking with an experienced GranuFlo lawyer is the first step in determining whether you qualify to file a case and receive a settlement for your injuries.
