Hospira recalls injections contaminated with particulate matter

Posted on February 18, 2015 11:25 am under Product Liability

Hospira Inc. issued a retail-level recall of certain lots of its Ketorolac Tromethamine Injection, USP, after receiving a customer report of particulate matters in the vials, according to a statement published by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on February 10.

The company urges all the stakeholders to visit the FDA website for the list of the affected units. The recalled injections were sold in the country between February 2013 and December 2014. The affected medical facilities and retailers that further distributed the products are urged to notify any facility that may have received the vials.

Administering an injection with a particulate matter may cause injurious, sometimes fatal health complications, such as allergic reaction and inflammation.
