An Apparent Cover-Up by the Manufacturer of GranuFlo and NaturaLyte

granuFlo and naturaLyte

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are manufactured by Fresenius Medical Care, which is the country's largest provider of dialysis products and services. In 2010, the company's own study linked the use of its products with cardiac arrest in 941 dialysis patients. Thereafter, in November of 2011, a Fresenius internal memo warned the products were associated with a "6 to 8 fold greater increase of cardiopulmonary arrest and sudden cardiac death in the dialysis facility". The internal memo ultimately concluded the problem "need[ed] to be addressed urgently." But instead, the company did nothing. The alleged cover-up was revealed when an anonymous source sent the internal memo to the New York Times, which precipitated an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has now launched a recall of these drugs.
