An issue with the propensity to cause severe health issues in otherwise healthy individuals from all walks of life, a drug recall is one of the most important recalls in existence. This is due to the fact that many of us are dependent of on our prescription medication and therefore, any issues with contamination can rapidly wreak havoc on someone’s health.
More and Drug Recalls
Nearly half of all Americans (47.9%) took at least one prescription drug over the past month. There are often drug recalls on both prescriptions and over the counter medications. For instance, in 2010, there was a massive recall of Tylenol, Motrin, and other drugs that are commonly used by the average person or child for pain. This means that no matter if you are dependent on any given drug, you still have the potential to be adversely affected by a drug recall. Moreover, there has been some controversy about the manner in which these recalls are handled as the victims are often allowed to pursue restitution monetarily, these payments are often insufficient as opposed to the damage the medication have caused, and the company typically continues with business as usual.
