There will be no immediate Avandia recall. An FDA panel voted to allow Avandia to remain on the market. Twelve members voted to withdraw Avandia.
At this point, we all know the question is not if Avandia is going to be withdrawn from the market but when and by who. I don’t expect an Avandia recall because it would be too helpful to plaintiffs’ lawsuits. I expect a soft withdrawal in the not too distant future.
