Many consumers erroneously believe that if the FDA approves a medical device, it is safe. The FDA only begins to investigate allegations that a product is defective or dangerous if patients begin reporting injuries, and only takes place once many innocent people have already suffered harm. Because of this, companies like Medtronic, who make dangerous medical devices, have an obligation to warn consumers when they may experience adverse events.

We are happy with the Alabama court decision. If a drug manufacturer takes a product to the marketplace, it has a duty warn people about its adverse effects, especially if the drug is reproduced as a generic that uses the same label. When a person suffers injuries by taking a dangerous pharmaceutical drug, that person should be entitled to financial compensation

Well, this is a tad scary. I hope this doesn't effect my grandfathers straight catheter. I tell you the medical world just keeps on getting more and more scary.
