On June 27, 2012, the FDA issued a recall for Fresenius Medical Care North America's dialysis products, Naturalyte Liquid Acid Concentrate and Naturalyte GranuFlo (powder) Acid Concentrate, due to a risk of potentially fatal serum bicarbonate levels. Naturalyte Liquid and Naturalyte GranuFlo are dialysis products.
On November 4, 2011, Fresenius sent an internal memo to doctors in the company’s dialysis centers informing of the risk and noted that 941 hemodialysis patients using the company’s products experienced cardiac arrest in 2010. However, Fresenius failed to inform the FDA and other facilities that used the product. It wasn’t until March 2012, when the FDA received an anonymous copy of the November internal memo, that other facilities became aware of this fatal danger.
