Recall of veterinarian medicine

State officials have alerted Michigan veterinarians about a recall of veterinarian medicine provided by a North Carolina pharmacy that has been shut down. The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy issued a recall of all lots of non-sterile and sterile products compounded, repackaged and distributed by Prescription Center Pharmacy between September 10, 2014 and March 10, 2015 due to lack of sterility, potency, and stability assurance. The Michigan Bureau of Heath Care Services says affected veterinarians should stop using all compounded products distributed by Prescription Center and that the products need to be disposed of immediately according to state and/or local government guidelines. Veterinarians need to contact owners of all affected patients and alert them to immediately stop using these products and dispose of them properly. They’re also urged to contact BHCS if there are any suspected adverse reactions or quality problems experienced as a result of using a recalled product. The company distributed recalled compounded products in all 50 states including Canada.  (MRN)
