Bayol’s manufacturer Pharmaceuticals has been charged with thousands of lawsuits post its drug recall in 2001. Majority of the lawsuits state that the manufacturer was well aware of the dreaded disease that the drug could cause and kept it under the wraps on purpose. They also mentioned that the warning label that could have educated the patients about its use and misuse was added much later and till then a lot of damage was done. However, Bayer had a different opinion to it and blamed the patients for misusing the drug. As per Bayer, the patients had taken doses which were inconsistent with the labeling mentioned on the drug, so the manufacturer was not responsible for the injuries caused to them. By the time Bayer called off the drug on 8th August 2001, almost 70,000 people had used it and 31 deaths had been reported.
