Manufacturers, even drug makers, have a legal responsibility to design and make safe products. Of course it’s legal to make products that have risky attributes, but the law requires manufacturers to warn consumers about those risks. Most people think this a pretty fair bargain: in exchange for their hard-earned money, consumers can expect that the products they purchase either are safe or that the risks are fairly, clearly stated.
Tragically, in the headlong rush to be the first to introduce a new drug to the market, some drug manufacturers have sold drugs to health care professionals and patients without fully understanding how these products will perform. In the case of Pradaxa, a well-known and widely sold blood thinner, thousands of patients experienced adverse health outcomes and more than 500 patients died in 2011 alone, according to the FDA.
