Questions over Sterility Prompts Recall from Downing Labs
A pharmacy is issuing a recall for products that could be unsafe for users.
Downing Labs announced this week that it would be voluntarily recalling all lots of sterile products that remain within expiry due to concerns over sterility assurance. The recall does not apply to any non-sterile compounded medications prepared by Downing Labs.
If there is a contamination in products intended to be sterile, patients are at risk of serious infections which may be life threatening. There have been no consumer complaints or reports of any issues with the recalled products to date.
The products were distributed nationwide and in the UK to patients and providers between April 20, 2015 and September 15, 2015.
Downing Labs requests that all patients and providers discontinue use and set aside any unused product until further instructions are received on how to return the product.
Customers with questions about the recall can contact Downing Labs at (800) 914-7435 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
