On August 27, 2013, the FDA issued a trio of recall alerts regarding compounded drugs. In one of the safety alerts, the FDA announced the voluntary recall of two lots of sterile injections by Park Pharmacy & Compounding Center.
Following a recent investigation of the Park Pharmacy & Compounding Center’s facilities in Irvine, California, the FDA expressed concerns over the reliability of laboratory methods used to assess sterility. The “sterile” injectables at issue were sold directly to consumers and to healthcare facilities by prescription during June and July of 2013 in California, Florida, New Mexico, and Indiana.
The following Park Pharmacy & Compounding Center injectable products have been recalled:
- Methylcobalamin 5mg/mL 30mL Amber Vials
- Lot #06132013@1
- Exp: 12/10/2013
- Multitrace-5 Concentrate 10mL Amber Vials
- Lot #05212013@20
- Exp: 11/17/2013
