Full Line Of Sterile Products Recalled

DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s a recall involving sterile products used to inject medication.

The FDA says a company called Specialty Compounding LLC., will voluntarily recall its full line of sterile products used to inject drugs, over concerns about bacterial bloodstream infections.

The agency says none of the Texas-based company’s products purchased after May 9 of this year should be used, and that they should be quarantined and returned to the company.

The products being recalled were distributed directly to patients in all 50 states, except for North Carolina.

The FDA said 15 patients in Texas developed bacterial bloodstream infections after receiving calcium gluconate injections, which are used to treat low calcium levels.

To return product or request assistance related to this recall, users should contact Specialty Compounding at 512-219-0724, Monday through Friday, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. CDT.
