Baxter Recalls One Lot of Nitroglycerin in 5% Dextrose Injection


Baxter has issued a voluntary recall of one lot of nitroglycerin in 5% dextrose injection after particulate matter was found in one vial. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the US FDA.

Injection of particulate matter can lead to blockage of blood vessels. It can also cause inflammation, particularly in the lungs, and local irritation of blood vessels due to the presence of foreign material. No adverse events associated with this issue have been reported to date.

Baxter's nitroglycerin in 5% dextrose injection is packaged in 250 mL glass containers, with 12 glass containers per carton. The affected product code is 1A0694, and the affected lot number is G105197. Products affected by this recall were distributed in Colombia, Saudi Arabia and the United States between January 17, 2013, and October 10, 2013. Baxter has notified its customers not to use product from the recalled lot and to return all affected product.
