Most product recalls issued by a manufacturer are voluntary, but in some instances, the FDA requests a recall to get a dangerous, defective, or contaminated product off the shelves. If you have been injured by a recalled product, our trial lawyers have provided some helpful information below. Take a look, then contact Turnbull, Holcomb & LeMoine, PC to schedule your free consultation.
Different Types of FDA Recalls
There are three classifications of FDA recalls, detailed below:
The most serious and urgent, Class I FDA recalls are often issued for defective products that cause serious health concerns or in the worst cases, death.
Class II recalls typically refer to short-term health issues, or to products that only present a slight chance of serious problems.
The least serious of FDA recalls, Class III recalls apply to minor defects that are unlikely to cause any harm.
For Class I and Class II recalls, the FDA oversees the process to make sure the proper steps are taken by the manufacturer and the product is removed from the market.
Medical Device Safety Alert
In addition to medications and vaccines, medical devices may be recalled as well. If a medical device is shown to cause adverse health effects, it may be recalled to protect patients from potential harm.
What to Do If You Experience an FDA Recall
If you have been injured by a recalled product, you may be eligible for compensation. But because an FDA recall may make it more difficult to recover damages, it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side. Class action lawsuits are often the result of defective product recalls, grouping consumers who suffered common injuries from a common source. Since no two cases are the same, be sure to seek trusted legal advice from a qualified product liability lawyer. If you were harmed by a defective product, contact a local personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options.
