How Can a Valsartan Recall Lawsuit Attorney Help Me?
In the first lawsuit filed against the makers of Valsartan, plaintiffs Elizabeth Duffy and John Duffy filed a federal complaint in the Southern District of New York against two drug makers and two drugstore chains for their role in manufacturing, distributing, and selling generic valsartan-containing drugs that were contaminated with NDMA, a substance the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has categorized as a “probable human carcinogen”.
The legal action, which was filed on behalf of the plaintiffs and all similarly situated consumers, accuses Solco Healthcare and Prinston Pharmaceutical of manufacturing and distributing the potentially harmful drugs and blames drugstores Walgreen Co. and Throggs Neck Pharmacy of selling the drugs to consumers.
These drug makers and drugstores will not be on the only ones sued over their role in allowing this medicine to end up in the medicine cabinets of so many consumers.
Valsartan Recall: What you should know
In a matter of mere months, the previously little-known pharmaceutical ingredient valsartan has gone from relative obscurity to being at the center of multiple drug recalls and at least one potential class-action lawsuit.
Since 1996, valsartan, marketed by Novartis under the brand name Dioval, has been approved in the United States for the treatment of high blood pressure and, later, heart failure. However, beginning in July 2018, products containing valsartan were subject to a series of drug recalls over contamination concerns, developments that already have yielded at least one federal lawsuit seeking class-action status.
