Dissolution Problems Prompt Recall by Dr. Reddy's


FDA has reported that Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories has initiated a voluntary recall for Metoprolol Succinate Extended Release Tablets, USP 25 mg, 100-count bottle for failed dissolution specifications.

The recall, initiated on May 23, 2014, involves 13,560 bottles, was for failure of a dissolution test observed at an 18-month time point and involved two lots.

FDA classified the recall as Class II, a situation in which use of or exposure to a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
