What are the FDA and our government doing to make sure that incidents like the contaminated Heparin drug recall do not happen again?

Nine lots of the drug Heparin were recalled in January 2008 after the FDA learned of many consumers’ health problems, including: very low blood pressure, difficulty breathing, vomiting, allergic reactions and death. 

At that time, the FDA began working to investigate the problem with Baxter, the manufacturing company of the dangerous drug. They tried to identify the root cause of the problem by evaluating active pharmaceutical ingredients in Heparin and the facilities that manufactured those ingredients. Two facilities were found to have produced contaminated batches of the drug, one located in China and another in New Jersey. 

It has been over three years since the investigation started, and Congress and the House Energy and Commerce Committee are calling on the FDA to release information they have found related to the Heparin recall. However, the FDA and the Chinese government have failed to identify how the Heparin came to be contaminated. 

U.S. government officials are determined to find out who is to blame for the defective drugs and the side effects they caused, as outlined in the recent press release, “Three Years After U.S. Deaths and Serious Complications, Chinese Government and FDA Still Have Not Identified Culprit or Contamination Source.”

If you suffered dangerous side effects from taking Heparin, or you lost a loved one due to this defective drug, you may be entitled to a financial recovery to compensate for medical expenses, lost wages and instances of pain and suffering.
