C.B. Fleet, which manufactures Fleet Phospho Soda products, currently faces a number of Fleet Phospho Soda lawsuits filed by individuals who suffered kidney damage or renal failure after using a Fleet Phospho Soda bowel cleansing solution. The Fleet Phospho Soda lawsuits allege that, while the risk of kidney damage from Fleet Phospho Soda and other oral sodium phosphate products was first reported in 2003, C.B. Fleet continued to market their over-the-counter oral sodium phosphate as a bowel prep without adequate warnings until 2008.

Fleet Phospho Soda Injuries

The FDA has confirmed that at least 21 people have developed the life-threatening kidney condition known as acute phosphate nephropathy after using oral sodium phosphate solutions like Fleet Phospho Soda.  Acute phosphate nephropathy can lead to renal failure and may require dialysis or a kidney transplant to treat.

In December 2008, the FDA announced that a black box warning would

be added to prescription oral sodium phosphate bowel cleansers such as Visicol and OsmoPrep. At that time, the agency also indicated that over-the-counter laxatives, such as Fleet Phospho Soda, should not be used in high doses for bowel preparation and should only be available by prescription. Following this announcement, C.B. Fleet withdrew its over-the-counter Fleet Phospho Soda products from the market.
