Kearsten and Zachary Walden Come Forward after Defective Product Recall

(February 22, 2024) – One of the leading global fertility technology companies is currently facing multiple lawsuits following the mishandling of In Vitro Fertilization (I.V.F.) procedures, leading to the destruction of embryos.

The liquid, designed to enhance fertility, became the center of controversy when CooperSurgical issued a recall for several batches of the liquid.

Despite its intended purpose to facilitate fertilization, the liquid had the opposite effect, rendering embryos destroyed. Numerous families are now stepping forward to share their heart-wrenching experiences, realizing that their prospects of conception were irreversibly compromised.

The most recent couple to come forward are Kearsten and Zachary Walden, who received the news on Thanksgiving morning that their embryos were destroyed using the mishandled in vitro fertilization.

The precise number of affected patients remains uncertain at this point. However, Mitchel C. Schiewe, an embryologist and laboratory director at California Fertility Partners, approximates the figure to be around 20,000 if even half of the purchased bottles were utilized.

As a result of the product recall, eight lawsuits have been filed against CooperSurgical. If you or someone you know has used defective products by CooperSurgical Incorporated, you are not alone. Collect any and all documentation, and contact an attorney as soon as possible.
