The Heparin recall and the drug injury lawyers of Stark & Stark are now evaluating potential lawsuits on behalf of people injured by recalled Heparin. Early in 2008 officials in the United States became aware that the use of contaminated Heparin was causing sever allergic reactions as well as death in patients across the country. To date it is believed that more than 80 people have died and another 800 have been injured as a result of coming in contact with contaminated Heparin.
In March 2008, major recalls of heparin were announced by the FDA who admitted that it had failed to inspect the American pharmaceutical firm Scientific Protein’s plant in China before approving the drug for sale. In March, The New York Times reported: ‘Problems with heparin reported to the agency include difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, excessive sweating and rapidly falling blood pressure that in some cases led to life-threatening shock’.
