- FDA Recalls Nearly 500 Cold and Allergy Prescription Drugs | Legal News | News Ticker
The United States Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, exists to act as a safeguard between manufacturers of foods and medications and the public that consumes them. While their process is generally all-encompassing in terms of approving products for sale in the United States, there are times when some products will slip through the cracks and be sold without the agency’s approval. Yesterday, the FDA attempted to correct one of those issues when it announced that nearly 500 different prescription products that have been used to treat common colds and allergies were being recalled immediately.
These products have been sold in the United States for many years, and many of these products existed before the current FDA approval process was ever put in place in 1962. Therefore, most people simply assumed that they had obtained the necessary approval to be used. Doctors were among many of these people, and it’s probable that many of them have prescribed these medications without realizing that they had not been reviewed or regulated. The FDA is attempting to get the word out to anyone who is using any of them to stop doing so.
These nearly 500 products that were pulled include medications that a large number of people have used over time, including such relatively familiar names as Lorane, Cardec, Organidin and Pediahist. The issue with these products is not that they are necessarily defective and dangerous as they are currently constituted. Instead, the FDA simply does not know what the ingredients are in these medications, and this lack of knowledge can prove to be dangerous for those who use them, particularly if they are young children or older people.
Arizona Dangerous Drugs Lawyers
Clearly, consumer patients who fill prescriptions written by their doctors have every reason to assume that the medication that they are being prescribed has met the basic standards for placement on the American market. Therefore, anyone who has or who could be harmed as a result of using them would have no idea as to the risk involved before consuming them. Therefore, the FDA is taking immediate action to make sure that these medications are no longer prescribed.
If you or someone you love has been harmed as a result of using these or any other defective medications, you need to seek the help of Arizona defective drugs lawyers who have been holding manufacturers of these dangerous products accountable for many years.

I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
The lawyers here are of top quality. Especially Trey Dayes, who was always respectful and hard-working.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
