'For the first time the FDA has exercised its expanded recall authority granted under the 2011 FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, releasing a mandatory recall order for any Triangle Pharmanaturals LLC product containing the herbal supplement kratom.

The company's refusal to comply with the voluntary recall issued by the FDA prompted the mandatory recall.'

Ted A. Schmidt

Ted's early career as a trial attorney began on the other side of the fence, in the offices of a major insurance defense firm. It was there that Ted acquired the experience, the skills and the special insight into defense strategy that have served him so well in the field of personal injury law. Notable among his successful verdicts was the landmark Sparks vs. Republic National Life Insurance Company case, a $4.5 million award to Ted's client. To this day, it is the defining case for insurance bad faith, and yet it is only one of several other multi-million dollar jury judgments won by Ted during his career. He is certified by the State Bar of Arizona as a specialist in "wrongful death and bodily injury litigation".
