Compounding Pharmacy Recalls 53 Products for Contamination

By Grant Law Office on May 8, 2013

All injectable sterile products with the Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy name have been recalled. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced that Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy LLC has voluntarily recalled its sterile products because of concerns that they might be contaminated. Individuals can visit the company’s official website to view the complete list of the 53 recalled products.

While inspecting the Balanced Solutions facilities, FDA inspectors say they found “poor practices and conditions,” which may have resulted in microbial contamination. According to a news report in Medscape, there was a lack of sterility assurance, which was confirmed through further analysis. Inspectors were particularly concerned with a chromium chloride injection that contained gram-negative bacteria. That form of bacteria can cause disease and infection, but there have not been any reports of injury or illness associated with the recalled products to date.

This particular issue is very similar to other recent recalls involving compounding pharmacies. On April 15, ApothéCure Inc and NuVision Pharmacy issued recalls of sterile products because of conditions that created a high potential for contamination. Shortly before that recall, Green Valley Drugs voluntarily recalled all lots of sterile products compounded, repackaged, and distributed by their pharmacy as well.

If you have been given any of these potentially contaminated products recently, it is important that you speak with your doctor. If you are experiencing unexpected side effects because of a recent medical treatment, it may be in your best interest to discuss your legal rights with a skilled product liability attorney. The manufacturers of defective and dangerous medications can be held accountable for their negligence.
