Champaign Drug Contamination Lawyers
FDA approval of a drug provides consumers with the peace of mind that the product they are consuming is safe for use and will not cause them undue harm. Unfortunately, there are various ways in which a drug can be altered from its original state, resulting in a product that is not identical to the one tested by the FDA and which has the potential to cause harm.
When a manufacturer’s negligence causes drugs become contaminated, their effects can become unpredictable and potentially dangerous. The skilled and knowledgeable Champaign drug contamination attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. can help you learn the different legal options you have.
One of the major problems with drug production is the inability of the FDA to properly regulate drugs and ingredients that originate in other countries. While the drugs are produced in the United States, an estimated 80% of the substances used to make or package the drugs sold here in America are made in other countries, with a growing percentage of these substances originating in China and India.
Drug recalls are the only way to protect consumers against these products, as the FDA lacks the power to recall batches of drugs known to be contaminated and is limited to withdrawing approval of a drug entirely, which it has only done twice. Company recalls of drugs are on the rise, increasing 400% between 2008 and 2009, meaning that more and more contaminated substances are entering the market despite the FDA’s efforts.
