FDA Alert Product Recall Intravenous Products From Claris Lifesciences Also Marketed Under the Names of of Sagent, Pfizer and We

Posted May 29 2010 11:55pm

  image Two of the drugs are in the antibiotic area and one other is used to treat nausea relating to chemotherapy treatment and post surgery.  Luckily enough most of these products are in hospital pharmacies but they could also be used in outpatient surgical centers and offices as well.  Recalls are a bear and we definitely need a better way to handle this.  Claris is located in India and manufactures a number of drugs used to treat critical patients and health issues so this appears to be pretty important as the last thing a patient needs is contamination in the drug that is supposed to be helping.  I will continue on here with my latest pitch to have such products marked with “tags” so they are not missed and used by mistake with being able to scan with a cell phone for recall notices.  

I have been pitching this for use for products in the USA, but with the number of imports, there’s certainly no reason why this can’t be carried through to other countries too perhaps with the US FDA being the center focal point.  BD 

“Claris Lifesciences is one of the largest sterile injectables pharmaceutical companies in India with a market presence in 76 countries worldwide. We primarily manufacture and market products across multiple markets, and therapeutic segments. A significant majority of these products are generic drugs that are capable of being directly injected into the human body and are predominantly used in the treatment of critical illnesses.” image

Healthcare professionals should NOT use and should immediately remove from their pharmacy inventories any metronidazole, ondansetron, and ciprofloxacin intravenous bags sold under the following labels:

Claris is initiating a recall of all lots of these two products, as well as all lots of ciprofloxacin. These products were all manufactured on the same manufacturing line. FDA is investigating the situation and will notify the public when new information becomes available.

Metronidazole and ciprofloxacin are antibiotics used to treat a variety of infections. Ondansetron is an antiemetic used to treat nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy or surgery.
