While there are some serious health risks associated with Yaz, the FDA has decided that in most cases, the benefits of the drug outweigh those risks and that the drug should stay on the market. However, there are many (including the FDA) who feel that the warning labels for Yaz were misleading or played down some of the potential risks. As a result, several Yaz lawsuits have been filed claiming that Bayer, the manufacturers of Yaz, intentionally mislead consumers by neglecting to fully disclose all of the harmful risks in their labeling and marketing of the drug or that Bayer failed to adequately test Yaz before putting it on the market. Currently, all Yaz litigation has been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation in Illinois.
