GranuFlo & Naturalyte Recalls
In a Class I recall effort by the Food and Drug Administration, GranuFlo

associated with the drug.

What are the symptoms of GranuFlo?
In 2012, Fresenius Medical Care voluntarily performed a Class I recall
by changing the labels of its product. Class I recalls are the most serious
type of recall performed by the FDA because it indicates that the use
or exposure of the product could cause serious health problems and possibly
death. The problem with GranuFlo is that it adds bicarbonate to the body
and doctors were not taking into account the additional amount added.
Patients who take this drug are at risk of serious heart problems.
