Dialysis Patients kept in the dark about GranuFlo and NaturaLyte

Long before a leaked internal memo ignited a firestorm at the United States Food and Drug Administration, dialysis giant Fresenius was aware of a Level 1 Recall of the GranuFlo and NaturaLyte dialysis powders. Even after the recall, the dialysis powders continued to be manufactured, distributed and used by Fresenius clinics nationwide. Unsuspecting patients were purposely kept in the dark.
