The FDA reports additional patient deaths are possibly linked to the blood thinner heparin so the company is mounting a recall of all of the drug.
Baxter International Inc. will recall the remaining lots of single and multi-dose injection and it will recall HEP-LOCK products.
Last month, Baxter recalled nine lots of heparin multi-dose after the drugs use was linked to four deaths and hundreds of mysterious allergic reactions.
Most of those adverse events were attributed to the multi-dose vial of heparin.
Now 17 other deaths are being investigated because of a link to heparin, although the FDA reminds reporters that those patients were already very sick so a definitive cause-effect at this time has not been established.
