A lawsuit has been filed in Ontario against Bayer -the manufactures of Yaz and Yasmin
The lawsuit alleges that Canadian women were “kept in the dark” about the increased risk of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, gallbladder disease and other medical conditions they had from taking Yaz or Yasmin.
In the United States, similar cases have taken place. In March, Bayer paid up to $24 million U.S. dollars to settle gallbladder injury claims in Illinois, California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. According to Reuters, plaintiffs who suffered gallbladder injuries would receive $2,000 while those who had their gallbladders removed would receive $3,000. A total of $1 Billion U.S. dollars will be divided among 4,800 women who said the pill caused blood clots that resulted in heart attack, strokes and other injuries.
However, in the United States, these cases are ultimately consolidated. ”In the U.S., most class actions never go to trial and instead if a class is successfully certified that it’s allowed to go forward as a class action, the defendant settles.” said Glenn Cohen, a Harvard law school professor.
In April 2012, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) required Bayer to change the labels on Yaz and Yasmin birth control products to emphasize blood clot warnings.
