(KSL News) -- No relief for an Ogden woman who took on the maker of Alka-Seltzer.
Four years ago Marlus Hardy suffered a debilitating stroke. Her family says it happened just hours after she took Alka Seltzer Plus tablets, which contained PPA, a then common decongestant.
The family sued pharmaceutical giant Bayer, which makes Alka-Seltzer, claiming the PPA caused her stroke.
Today the jury sided with Bayer, saying Hardy's attorneys didn't prove the Alka Seltzer Plus tablets caused the stroke.
Hardy's attorneys say they will appeal.
