What’s the Problem?
Product Quest Manufacturing LLC, the Florida-based company that manufactures CVS brand products, issued the recall after routine testing identified the presence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa  in the white nasal spray bottle, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram negative pathogen that can potentially lead to cystic fibrosis and other life-threatening infections in certain patient populations. People with cystic fibrosis and immune deficiencies are at the greatest risk of injury, CDC said.
Pseudomonas Infection Symptoms
- Fever and chills
- Body aches
- Breathing nausea
- Rapid pulse and breathing
- Vomiting / diarrhea
- Decreased urination
- Compromised immune systems
FDA Recommendation on CVS Brand Nasal Spray
Consumers who purchased CVS Health 12 Hour Sinus Relief Nasal Mist affected by the recall should discard it immediately or return it to any CVS location for a refund. If you have additional questions about the recall, you should contact Product Quest Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone concerned about a bacterial infection should consult their physician immediately.
What are CVS Nasal Spray Recall Lawsuits Alleging?
When a person suffers an injury due to the failure of a drug manufacturer to produce safe medicinal products, the injured person may have grounds to sue the manufacturer. If you took CVS 12 Hour Nasal Spray Mist and suffered a subsequent infection that caused you a financial loss, you have grounds to file a claim.
The law of products liability in the United States, although varying in some details from state to state, is uniform. A person may have a cause of action if the product that he or she had repetitive use can file a lawsuit or file a claim for damages if the plaintiff can prove that the manufacturer’s defect caused the injury.
The link between a defective product and a person’s loss is known as causation. Without causation, you have no claim. The company is not automatically liable for your losses if you cannot show that the company caused the injury.

Most cases involving pharmaceuticals or over-the-counter medications allege that a drug was sold with design, manufacturing, and/or marketing defects, which typically refers to a company’s failure to warn of a certain side effect. In the case of CVS nasal spray, our lawyers suspect that patients may be able to take legal action in light of claims that Product Quest failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risk of bacterial contamination.
Why You Need a Qualified Lawyer
Defective drug cases are highly complex lawsuits. They require the proper expert witnesses to illustrate to the fact finder why the manufacturing process was faulty.
You also need expert witnesses to educate the fact finder about how your loss affects you and your family now and in the future. You will also need an expert witness to make the connection between your injury or illness and the manufacturer’s production failure.
You are not actually saving any money. Analysis shows that people with attorneys win on average 35% more than people who are unrepresented.
Insurance companies and insurance defense attorneys understand how to attack a particular situation and resolve a possible huge case for short money up front by approaching the injured party with a settlement offer that appears fair before the injured person can hire an attorney.
We work on a contingency fee basis and offer a free case review. A contingency fee will be paid if and only if we are successful on your behalf.
You never have to dig into your pocket for any money. Our fee comes out of your earnings and we also deduct the costs of litigation that we advanced to you.
