Prior to the manufacturer recall, GranuFlo Dry Acid Concentrate and NaturaLyte were used to treat chronic renal (kidney) failure during hemodialysis with annual sales revenues estimated at $80 million or more. An internal memo from manufacturer Fresenius Medical Care North America, Nov. 4 2011, indicated the company knew of the significant heart attack risks during treatment. The company notified its own dialysis clinical network but the data was not shared with non Fresenius clinics.
