Zicam Cold Remedy Defects in Miami, Florida

Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel, Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs and Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs for Kids were withdrawn from store shelves by their manufacturer after a warning from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said there were reports of consumers losing their sense of smell after using this product.

Although the manufacturer of Zicam, Matrixx Initiatives, Inc. recalled these products from store shelves, they have denied any link between Zicam and anosmia. A researcher has discovered scientific evidence that nasal cold remedies containing zinc may indeed cause a loss of the sense of smell, known as anosmia in the medical community.

It is estimated that over two million Americans suffer from this disorder which can have serious consequences. Anosmia can inhibit an individual’s ability to detect serious threats to their health and well-being such as gas leaks, fires, poisonous fumes or spoiled food products. The loss of the sense of smell can effect a person’s ability to earn a living as well.

If you live in the Miami, Florida area and you or someone you love has lost their sense of smell after using Zicam Cold Remedy products, please contact the defective pharmaceutical attorneys at The Cochran Firm today to schedule a confidential consultation to learn how to proceed to protect your legal rights and get the financial compensation you deserve for the injury you have suffered.
