Even as Fresenius Medical Care continues to deny the danger of their dialysis drug Granuflo, lawsuits continue to rise. On January 14, 2013, a Texas woman filed a lawsuit against the medical manufacturer alleging that they were responsible for her husband’s death in 2011. This is just one of the many cases that have been filed across the country after the March 2012 recall of Granuflo and Naturalyte.
Emma Hernandez of Lubbock, Texas lost her husband Santos two days after he received dialysis treatment and the dangerous drug Granuflo. Santos went to his routine dialysis treatment on January 15, 2011 and returned home feeling weak and experiencing tremendous difficulty walking. Two days after the treatment, Santos clutched his chest and died of a massive heart attack before emergency services were able to reach the house. Emma and her counsel claim that the dangerous dialysis drug Granuflo was to blame for his death and seek punitive damages.
Granuflo and the Fresenius Cover-up
Claims that Fresenius Medical Care knew how dangerous their dialysis drug Granuflo was have begun to surface and have prompted numerous lawsuits across the country. Plaintiffs assert that Fresenius knew of these dangers and these risks as early as 2003, but failed to warn the general public. In fact, internal memos point to the fact that Fresenius knew of these dangers and told their own doctors and clinics in 2011, but not the thousands of other providers who used their products. In March 2012, a Class I recall of Granuflo was implemented; Class I recalls are the most serious level of recalls.
