The FDA is issuing a warning to veterinarians and their clients not to use products made by a North Carolina Pharmacy after its closing and a recall. The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy shut down the Fayetteville company called Prescription Center Pharmacy after it was inspected in March.
State inspectors found the compounding pharmacy wasn’t able to assure the sterility, stability, and potency of the drugs it produced. Those drugs were distributed across the nation and Canada.
The NCBOP ordered a recall of all products made by the Prescription Center between September 2014 and March 2015. More than 600 drugs in various formulations — for humans and animals — are included in the recall.
The FDA states it is not aware of any adverse events associated with the products, but due to the lack of sterility assurance, and out of an abundance of caution, using the products is not advised.
