Last week, Endo Pharmaceuticals and the FDA announced the recall of two lots of Endocet. Endocet is a painkiller and the recall was announced after discovering that certain bottles might contain a higher dosage of acetaminophen than what the product is indicated to contain. As stated, the recall affects two lots of 100 count bottles of the painkiller. As a Plantation Products Liability Injury Attorney, I am happy to report that there haven’t been any injuries associated with this recall. That is very fortunate news because this incident could have caused some serious consequences.
According to the FDA Endocet Recall Release, the tablets that contain the higher dosage of acetaminophen could cause liver toxicity or even liver damage for certain people based on their alcoholic consumption or other medications that they take. As a Plantation Accident Lawyer, I can say that Endo Pharmaceuticals is very fortunate that no one suffered injury as a direct result of the defective drugs. As mentioned, the symptoms that one could suffer are quite severe and any injuries could pose a significant legal problem for the company.
Fortunately, the total number of bottles being recalled isn’t tremendously large, otherwise the likelihood of someone becoming ill would dramatically increase. Hopefully everyone who takes this medication becomes aware of the recall and those who have the defective tablets find out about the mistake prior to consumption. As a Plantation Injury Lawyer, I just wanted to do my part to alert those who might take this medication about this recent Endocet recall.
