Pharmacy Recalls Sterile Compounding Products

BOSTON (March 25, 2013)--Pallimed Solutions Inc., of Woburn, is recalling some sterile compounding products, but said Monday the recall was a precautionary measure and there were no reports of any illnesses.

It said it issued the recall after a recent unannounced inspection by state and federal regulators.

A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that officials are analyzing a foreign substance that was visible in several vials.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The company said the recalled products were prepared for fewer than 800 patients and said the recall doesn't involve any other product.

The state stepped up inspections of compounding pharmacies after a deadly fungal meningitis outbreak was linked to a steroid produced at a different pharmacy.
