Magellan All LeadCare Blood Lead Testing Systems Patient Investigation

Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of patients and third party payors against Meridian Bioscience related to a blood lead testing system sold by its subsidiary, Magellan Diagnostics Inc. The Food and Drug Administration issued a Safety Notice on May 17, 2017 “warning Americans that certain lead tests manufactured by Magellan Diagnostics may provide inaccurate results for some children and adults in the United States” and recommending that parents of young children, pregnant women and nursing mothers who have been tested for lead exposure with this device “consult a health care professional about whether they should be retested.”
