A drug recall occurs if it is determined that the side effects outweigh the benefits to a patient. Often the side efffects do not manifest themselves until after a consumer is injured. Pharmacutials is a huge business making billions of dollars each year and frequently puts profit ahead of consumer safety. A defective drug that is released for consumption and was known to cause injury or suspected to cause harm is a negligent act.
