Warning: Another Moldy Drug Recall – StopMoldCold

Nationwide Recall of All Compounded Products Due to Mold Contamination

MedPrep Consulting Distributes Moldy Vials

Another moldy drug recall from a different compounding company, Med Prep Consulting,  Inc. of Tinton Falls, New Jersey, has been issued.  According to Philly Pharma (Tuesday, March 19, 2013), they report the following company statement:

“nationwide recall of all lots of compounded products due to potential mold contamination.”

MedPrep released a comprehensive statement of recall on March 18th, 2013.  A Connecticut hospital noticed that there visible particulates and contacted MedPrep.  At this time, 5 bags have been discovered :  Magnesium Sulfate 2 g Dextrose 5% for injection compounds tested positive for mold.  The recall statement of cause:

” Voluntary Recall due to Lack of Sterility Assurance”.

What that means that another company was careless with maintaining sterility.  Probably in too much of a hurry. Products packaged in plastic infusion bags, plastic infusion devices, plastic syringes, and glass vials were distributed to:  Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Delaware hospitals.  None of these products were distributed to retail pharmacies or home care agencies for self- administration. Products in plastic syringes were distributed nationwide to physician  offices and clinics.
