The law firm offers a free case review and is standing by with help for you and your family.
Contaminated heparin is a killer
Two sources of contaminated heparin were found in 2008. One was in pre-filled heparin and normal saline IV flush syringes that contained the bacterium Serratia marcescens, which causes bloodstream infections. The other contaminated heparin came from the manufacturer substituting a cheap version of heparin's active pharmaceutical ingredient. Traced to a manufacturer in China, this led to acute allergic reactions and more than 80 deaths in the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued health warnings and recall orders, but much damage already has been done. Recalled were syringes from AM2PAT Inc. and contaminated lots of heparin from Baxter International. In the meantime, heparin is still used successfully to prevent fatal blood clots, a function it’s provided since the 1930s. An anticoagulant that lowers the body's blood-clotting ability, heparin has helped many people over the years. Yet defective heparin can be very harmful – even fatal. Side effects can range from bruising near the injection site to a deadly allergic reaction.
