Tainted products not fit for human or pet consumption

Medicinal products are supposed to make people everywhere, including here in Ohio, feel better. However, when manufacturing processes turn them into tainted products, people could suffer serious harm. The companies who manufacture these medications have a responsibility to warn potential victims and get them off the shelves by recalling them and announcing it to the public.

What litigation against opioid manufacturers alleges

Pharmaceutical companies have made billions, if not trillions, of dollars providing medication to this country's population. Ill or injured people here in Ohio and across the country take a variety of prescription drugs every day for both acute and chronic conditions.

Many believe that opioid manufacturers and distributors caused this epidemic, and some have filed litigation to hold these companies accountable.

Food and Drug Administration announces recall of Naloxone

It would be difficult for Ohio residents to read any online news without reading about the opioid crisis going on in the country. People are overdosing and suffering from addictions at an alarming rate.

However, right now, that could do more harm than good since the Food and Drug Administration recently announced a recall involving Narcan.
