Ketek, an antibiotic used for the treatment of acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, acute bacterial sinusitis, tonsillitis, or pharyngitis, has been shown to cause severe liver injury. Health Canada, in its September 2007 edition, has documented the risk of liver damage for users of the drug. The FDA should recall Ketek as a dangerous drug. Its risks significantly outweigh its benefits.
