The Food and Drug Administration has reported that Nora Apothecary & Alternative Therapies issued a voluntary recall regarding all units of certain compounded products produced by them that could be contaminated due to a lack of sterility assurance. According to many sources, multiple compounding pharmacies are recalling solutions over sterility concerns.
Since it’s uncertain whether the products re really contaminated or not, the company decided to issue the recall for all units of potentially hazardous compounded product dispensed either on April 19, 2013 or before. Healthcare facilities and patients that have received the products should contact the company at once to arrange the returning of the items. If you have been treated with compounding products that have been recalled and you have any health concerns, contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
The recall affects about 400 prescriptions compounded by the company and other 95 dosage units of several compounded products supplied to clinics or medical offices.
The company hasn’t received any incident reports or complaints related to illnesses or other adverse reactions related to its compounded products, however, patients are urged to contact the FDA if they have any illnesses to report.
