Compounding Pharmacy Recalls Sterile Drugs

LAKE MARY, Fla. (April 21, 2013)--A Florida-based compounding pharmacy is voluntarily recalling all lots of its sterile non-expired drug products sold nationwide because of concerns the products are not sterile and may contain bacteria.

On Sunday, U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials encouraged health care providers who have received sterile products from Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy to quarantine the products.

The recall includes a few dozen sterile products, most of which are injectable drugs.

The FDA identified gram-negative bacteria in the products, which can cause disease, but officials said the bacteria do not usually cause infection in humans.
