The manufactures of pharmaceutical products such as prescription drugs are required to insure that their products are safe for use by consumers. There have been numerous drug recalls in recent years as well as lawsuits against drug manufacturers which have shed the spotlight on drug manufacturers and their products and whether or not they are safe for use by consumers.
Drugs such as Celebrex, Bextra, Vioxx and Oxicontin, among other drugs, have been subject to recent recalls by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In 2013 alone the Food and Drug Administration reports over 50 drug recalls in the United States. These recalls included drugs such as Mitosol, Omontys Injection, all Medpred Compounded Products, Hospira 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injections, Warfarin, and Altaire Pharmaceuticals Carboxymethylcellulose Sodium 0.5% ophthalmic solution.
