These products were recalled due to defects which might cause harm to the user or others around the product. Even pharmaceutical products have been recalled by the manufacturers. Pharmaceutical products are by nature thought to be safe and effective for their intended use. It is assumed that all necessary testing has been done by the pharmaceutical company before the product is released for use. If the pharmaceutical product has defects or is contaminated or does not contain warnings about possible adverse effect, it amounts to negligence on the part of the manufacturer.
Bayer Trasylol Recall
Trasylol is used to reduce perioperative blood loss and the need for blood transfusion in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass in the course of coronary artery bypass graft surgery who are at an increased risk for blood loss and blood transfusion. Trasylol is most commonly given to patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass, a procedure that enables a machine to take over the heart’s function when it is stopped during surgery, during coronary artery bypass graft surgery, a medical procedure used to increase blood flow to the heart. Trasylol is administered to patients who are at an increased risk for blood loss and potential blood transfusion.
Trasylol was recalled amid growing evidence that the drug may be linked to a higher risk of death than that of competing drugs. Trasylol had been linked to increased risk of death, kidney or renal failure, heart attacks, strokes and encephalopathy among heart surgery patients.
