FDA Announces More Compounding Pharmacy Recalls


FDA inspections of compounding pharmacies have revealed that results of some sterility testing by third-party laboratories may be inaccurate, causing potential risk to patients. University Compounding Pharmacy is voluntarily recalling products, including Testosterone Cypionate (Sesame Oil), Testosterone Cypionate/Testosterone Proprionate, and PGE-1 NS, for injection, to the consumer level. The recall is a result of FDA inspections of methods used by an independent third-party laboratory to assess sterility. FDA believes the sterility test results may not be reliable and there may be microbial contamination in products intended to be sterile.

Last week, FDA announced a voluntary recall of products from Medaus Pharmacy, including sterile compounded consumer products, due to inability to confirm that the quality control testing performed by an independent, third-party laboratory was conducted in a manner consistent with standards.
