Wisconsin Drug Recalls Lawyer
Prescription and over-the-counter drugs are designed to help individuals with specific health problems treat or cure their ailments. Although consumers rely on the proper design and manufacturing of medications, these items are not always produced with the exacting attention to safety that is necessary. The unfortunate result of inadequate design and manufacturing of the drug is the possibility of a dangerous and even deadly medication.

Drug Recall Facts
Sometimes, a pharmaceutical company may decide to withdraw a drug from the market once it becomes aware that the product is defective. On the other hand, they may be obligated by the FDA to recall that drug once any dangers are discovered.
There are four different types of recalls:
- Class I – the product has resulted in a significant number of health issues or deaths, increasing the risk that continued distribution of the product will result in further severe health risks for consumers
- Class II Recall – the item has been shown to cause a significant number of health problems, though they are usually not permanent and can be recovered from
- Class III Recall – the product may have been shown to cause some health problems, but at a much smaller risk
- Market Withdrawal – the pharmaceutical company makes a decision to withdraw the product from distribution without the request of the FDA, typically due to problems after manufacturing
Anytime a product poses a threat to the public, it should be promptly recalled by the company who manufactured it to prevent injury to unsuspecting consumers.
