The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Fayetteville-based compounding pharmacy Prescription Center Pharmacy, is closing after authorities learned about deficiencies that might cause their products to be unsafe, a report by the agency revealed on April 1.
An inquiry by the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy revealed that the company’s sterile and non-sterile drugs for human and veterinary use might be significantly compromised. Apart from the closure, the N.C. Board of Pharmacy also ordered the company to recall all the products they have compounded, repackaged, and distributed.
Affected products were distributed in all 50 states from September 10, 2014 to March 10, 2015. Patients and healthcare providers are urged not to use the products for their safety and to dispose of them in compliance with state and local measures.
If you have been hurt by any medical product that has been manufactured under unsafe standards, you might be eligible to file a claim against the maker involved. Speak with an attorney at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling our Madison office at (414) 271-0900 today.
