Bayer AG, Germany’s largest drugmaker, was accused in a lawsuit of ignoring health risks of the contraceptive Yaz and advertising the drug as safe to boost sales.
The Yasmin family of birth-control pills, known as Yaz and Yasmin, carries a four times increased risk of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism compared with other contraceptives, according to the suit, filed in St. Catharines, Ontario, by two women. They seek class-action, or group, status to represent all women who used the drugs.
“It’s a failure-to-warn case,” the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Baer said. “People need to be aware that if they choose to use the drugs they have a four times greater risk” of health problems.
The Canadian suit follows about 300 similar lawsuits filed in the U.S. over Yaz. About 200 have been filed in federal litigation consolidated in East St. Louis, Illinois. Another 50 were consolidated in state court in Philadelphia.
The case is Between Ann Schwoob and Bayer Inc., 52030/10, Ontario Superior Court of Justice (St. Catharines).
