Yet Another Heparin Recall

The FDA announced a nationwide recall of the blood thinner heparin made by B. Braun Medical Inc. because of concerns that the product may be contaminated with trace amounts of the same substance that was found to be in the 2008 heparin recall.

The heparin was manufactured in 2008 and will expire on Oct. 31, 2010, and Nov. 30, 2010. The FDA said people who have heparin from the recalled lots should discontinue use immediately. If you have been affected by this recall, please contact your doctor immediately, and contact Thomas & Wan, LLP to know your legal rights.
