Actor Dennis Quaid has sued Baxter Healthcare, TMZ.com reports. His twin babies were given massive overdoses of Baxter's heparin, an anticoagulant. Rather than suing the hospital or personnel who gave the babies the overdose, he's going after Baxter, alleging that the labeling of the high dose container was too similar to the low dose container.
Relevant (but not admissible, presumably, as subsequent remedial measures), Baxter announced new labeling for heparin, presumably making them more immediately readable.
