FDA warns of recalled compounded drugs in Michigan
The Food and Drug Administration is warning doctors, veterinarians and patients to avoid certain sterile drugs distributed by the Specialty Medicine Compounding Pharmacy of Michigan.
The pharmacy, in South Lyon near Detroit, has recalled drugs distributed in Michigan between July 1 and Oct. 19. The company says no drugs were distributed outside the state.
The specialty pharmacy agreed to conduct the recall after finding floating particles in a sterile drug that came from a lot that may have been given to hospital patients. The FDA says it's unclear what the particles were.
The FDA recommends doctors and patients stop using drugs from the pharmacy immediately. For additional details, the public can contact the Specialty Medicine Compounding Pharmacy at 248-446-2643.
No health problems have been reported in connection with the recall.
