Fresenius, Maker of Recalled Dialysis Drugs GranuFlo And NaturaLyte, Now Has Problems At Its Dialysis Center In Bessemer, Alabama

Fresenius, the maker of the recalled dialysis drugs GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, is back in the news because its Bessemer, Alabama dialysis center has been closed due to two deaths and five hospitalizations of dialysis patients last month.

Consumer injury attorney Michael J. Evans announced today that he and two other law firms have launched a new website dedicated to providing information and offering legal assistance to people with potential claims caused by dialysis drugs, such as GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, or other dialysis malfeasance. The website is http://www.DialysisLawsuitAttorneys.com.

“My litigation partners and I decided it was time to begin offering legal services to people who may have been injured by the recalled dialysis drugs GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, or who may have suffered injuries due to some other form of negligent conduct by the company performing dialysis,” said Evans.GranuFlo & NaturaLyte Dialysis Drug Recall by FDA

“Fresenius, the maker of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte, not only makes dialysis drugs, but it also provides dialysis services through dialysis centers located throughout the United States.” said Evans.

“The GranuFlo and NaturalLyte recall in 2012 was followed up by the filing of so many GranuFlo lawsuits that they were given multidistrict litigation status and transferred to the federal court in the District of Massachusetts on March 29, 2013,” Evans said.

Evans noted that “a June 17, 2013 AL.com report says that Bessemer Kidney Center, operated by Fresenius in Bessemer, Alabama, was closed in May 2013 after 2 deaths and 5 hospitalizations occurred within a few days. Although an investigation by the Alabama Department of Public Health did not find “a common thread” tying the deaths and hospitalizations together, the investigation did find “deficiencies” that must be addressed with a plan of action before the center can re-open, according to the report on AL.com. The report says that “deficiencies” were found at the dialysis center last year, as well.”

The new website, http://www.DialysisLawsuitAttorneys.com, will focus on more than just GranuFlo and NaturaLyte lawsuits,” said Evans. “We plan to look at other potential cases for people who have been harmed by dialysis mistakes, defective dialysis equipment, or dialysis drugs such as GranuFlo or NaturaLyte.”

FDA Warning Letter Sent to Fresenius March 5, 2013

Evans noted that Fresenius received a Warning Letter from the FDA on March 5, 2013 for manufacturing “adulterated” dialyzers. which are used during the process of dialysis.

“After researching the dialysis industry, my litigation partners and I came to believe that there may be a number of people with injuries arising out of defective dialysis drugs or medical devices, or other medical mistakes in the dialysis procedure,” Evans said. Evans said he has launched the http://www.dialysislawsuitattorneys.com website in partnership with the prominent litigation law firms of Yearout & Traylor, P.C. and Gathings Law.
