Migliaccio & Rathod LLP File Nationwide Class Action Complaint Against Major Pharmaceutical Companies for Contaminated Valsartan Sales and Are Appointed by Court to Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee

Migliaccio & Rathod, as an appointed member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee and co-lead of the Medical Monitoring group, have filed a Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint against Teva, Major Pharmaceuticals, and Solco Healthcare. This complaint is based on reports that found large quantities of the hypertension drug Valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, were contaminated with a carcinogen called NDMA, which increases one’s risk of cancer after exposure. This class action litigation seeks, among other things, compensation for the plaintiffs’ losses and injuries relating to the defendants’ negligence and failure to exercise due care in the manufacturing, testing, distribution, labeling, marketing, and sale of Valsartan throughout the United States.

As of November 2022, pretrial proceedings are ongoing as the multi-district litigation awaits its first bellwether trial.
