FDA: Ameridose Recalls All Products
Ameridose, a sister company of the pharmacy linked to a meningitis outbreak that has killed 28 people, announced Wednesday a voluntary recall of all its products, a move to cooperate with regulators that could nevertheless create shortages of some drugs.
In particular, the Food and Drug Administration is concerned about the availability of several drugs given as shots or intravenous drips or used during surgery.
The Westborough, Massachusetts-based company said it had not received any reports of adverse reactions to the products it is recalling but that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has asked it to improve its sterility testing processes.http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/31/us-usa-health-meningitis-ameridose-idUSBRE89U18I20121031
