In a petition for review of an FDA order imposing civil penalties on a medical device manufacturer for failing to file certain reports, the order is affirmed where: 1) the hearing petitioners received provided them with due process; 2) the events at issue constituted "serious injuries" under 21 U.S.C. section 360i(a)(1)(A); and 3) petitioners were only required to have acted in deliberate indifference to or reckless disregard of the reporting requirements.
