Specialty Compounding, LLC is voluntarily recalling all lots of sterile medications within expiry. Note: an earlier version of this news release indicated that the recall applied to all unexpired sterile compounded products dispensed since May 9, 2013; however, the recall applies to any sterile medication that has not reached its expiration date, including all strengths and dosage forms.
Specialty Compounding, LLC, a subsidiary of Peoples Pharmacy Inc., is voluntarily recalling all lots of sterile medications within expiry. The recall was initiated after reports of bacterial infection affecting 15 patients at two Texas hospitals, Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional and Corpus Christi Medical Center Bay Area, whose treatment included IV infusions of calcium gluconate from Specialty Compounding.
Bacterial infections have been potentially associated with contaminated calcium gluconate infusions.
