ReproMed Fertility CLASS ACTION

The suit alleges that a malfunction in a cryogenic storage tank located at ReproMed – the Toronto Institute for Reproductive Medicine (TIRM) – caused catastrophic vacuum pump failure. As a result, the temperature in the tank rose to a point which likely damaged embryos, sperm and eggs stored within it. The affected embryos, sperm and eggs are no longer viable or destroyed.
