A California compounding pharmacy is voluntarily recalling all unexpired lots of sterile compounded veterinary products due to sterility concerns. Abbott’s Compounding Pharmacy distributed the products to veterinarian and physician offices in California.
The recall includes injectable medications, sterile solutions, eye drops, and eye ointments. All recalled products have a label that includes the Abbott Compounding Pharmacy name and expiration date. This recall impacts all sterile products distributed between January 1, 2015 and January 1, 2016.
The recall was issued after a series of onsite inspections by the FDA. The company states, out of an abundance of caution it is voluntarily recalling all sterile compounded products within the listed dates. “If there is microbial contamination in products intended to be sterile, patients are at risk for serious and potentially life-threatening infections.”
To date, Abbott’s Compounding Pharmacy says it has not received any reports of any adverse effects or injuries. The recalled products were distributed exclusively within the state of California directly from its Berkeley pharmacy location.
Customers with questions regarding the recall can contact Abbott’s Compounding Pharmacy by phone Monday thru Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm at (510) 548-8777.
