Our lawyers are investigating ReliOn syringe lawsuits after the FDA notified doctors and patients that Tyco is recalling one lot of ReliOn sterile, single-use, disposable, hypodermic syringes with permanently affixed hypodermic needles on the suspicion that the ReliON syringes have been mislabeled. This possible defect may lead to patients receiving an overdose of as much as 2.5 times the intended dose on insulin. Such an overdose can cause hypoglycemia and other serious health consequences, including death.
This recall appears to impact ReliOn Insulin Syringes sold at Wal-Mart or Sam’s Clubs since August 1, 2008. Approximately 471,000 potentially defective Sam’s Club and Walmart Insulin Syringes are subject to this recall (which is 4,710 boxes).
Wal-Mart is doing the right thing, telling ReliOn consumers to return the recalled syringes to their local Wal-Mart store or Sam’s Club pharmacy. Customers will be provided a replacement product.
