Rituxan® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The Federal Drug Administration requires that a “black box” warning be placed on the labeling of the prescription drug. This is the strongest warning issued by the agency.
Medical providers and patients both depend upon pharmaceutical companies to design, develop and market new products in the best interest of the general public. When we learn that a pharmaceutical producer or products provider has been singled out as putting profits over patients, our lawyers begin a deliberate search to determine potential liability. In some cases, the FDA will have already issued directives as to how the product is used and which contraindicated situations should be avoided.
