FDA Demands Stronger Warning Labels for the Yaz Contraceptive, Says

As a result of the health issues associated with the drug, the FDA has demanded that stronger warning labels be placed on Yaz packaging.


New York, NY Leading German pharmaceutical company, Bayer, are expected to pay out $110 million in Yaz lawsuit settlements after claims that their contraceptive drug causes blood clots in women.

These lawsuits have come after the Food and Drink Association (FDA) demanded that the company place more prominent warning signs on Yaz packaging, reports

The FDA has examined data relating to thousands of women who are thought to have experienced blood costs because of Yaz. After the investigation, the FDA concluded that women are thought to be 3 times more likely to have a blood clot after taking Yaz than other lower estrogen forms of contraception. As a result, they have demanded Bayer to place much stronger labelling on the Yaz packaging to warn of the risk of blood clots, said a spokesperson for, a consumer information website designed to help victims of Yaz side-effects.

The upcoming $110 million pay out that Bayer are expected to make, marks the first signs of Yaz settlements. And according to, the German company could have saved a great deal of money by not going through the courts. $110 million sounds like a lot of money, but in reality Bayer, who in 2010 made over $1.58 billion in contraceptive sales, could have been made to pay much more than this as a result of litigation in US Courts, said the spokesperson.

The original January 2011 trial was postponed to enable a mediator to step in and negotiate the out of court settlement, and according to, mediation seems to have come to the rescue for Bayer.
