The Heparin Toll

Thursday, April 10, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The New York Times summarizes the recent developments, but neglects to note the recent move to recall medical devices that may be contaminated by the bad heparin produced in China.

The last caller to yesterday’s show recounted his friend’s two adverse reactions to recent dialysis treatments, both of which involved heparin. Of course he couldn’t say that those reactions were the result of contaminated heparin still on shelves in the U.S., but if in fact some of the contaminated supply or tainted devices are still in use, it will be in part because the FDA’s alert system is flawed and in part because MSM for whatever reason failed to follow this story with the vigor that usually accompanies a mass tort.
