Simply Thick will recall all thickening gel products manufactured at its Stone Mountain, Georgia plant since June 2009. The recall was issued after officials with the FDA advised the company that they failed to file a proper scheduling process. The FDA issued a warning last month telling parents not to give SimplyThick® brand thickener to infants born before 37 weeks gestation.
Lawyers were already chomping the bit at these cases for injuries to children injured before 37 weeks. The alleged injuries from Simply Thick are beyond serious: death and babies who needed surgery to remove part of their intestine as the result of using SimplyThick® brand thickener. So this company is drawing even more attention to itself with this recall.
