Our firm has recently filed two state-court lawsuits against the makers of Fleet Phospha-soda. The complaints in these two cases were filed in Montgomery County, Alabama, and St. Johns County, Florida, respectively. The Plaintiffs in these lawsuits used Fleet Phospha-soda prior to undergoing colonoscopies. Fleet Phospha-soda is made by C.B. Fleet Company, Inc., which is headquartered in Virginia.
Our clients were healthy women in their fifties who used the product as directed by their doctors. Shortly after ingesting Fleet Phospha-soda, the women went into renal failure and were diagnosed with a condition known as acute phosphate nephropathy or nephrocalcinosis. Fleet Phospha-soda was available over-the-counter, but has since been removed from the shelves. Currently, it may only be obtained by prescription.
C.B. Fleet knew for several years that the product was causing damage to the kidneys of the users, but continued to encourage physicians to use the product as a bowel cleansing agent. C.B. Fleet failed to adequately warn of the dangers associated with the product. Ben Locklar, a lawyer in our Mass Tort Section, is the lead lawyer in these cases. Andy Birchfield and I will work with him and help try the cases.
