As a precautionary measure, the distribution firms Leader Brand, Major Pharmaceuticals, and Rugby Laboratories are jointly issuing a nationwide voluntary recall of all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC at its FDA registered facility in Davie, Fla. due to possible product contamination.
The distribution firms are committed to patient safety and are partnering with the Food and Drug Administration to notify customers who may be in possession of liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC. Please see the below list of affected products.
The products subject to this recall were distributed nationwide to wholesale and retail facilities, including hospitals and pharmacies. Through recent communication with FDA, the distribution firm Rugby Laboratories learned of a potential issue with a product manufactured by PharmaTech LLC. The FDA informed Rugby Laboratories that it received several adverse event reports of B. cepaciainfections in patients, which may be linked to PharmaTech LLC manufactured Diocto Syrup or Diocto Liquid (docusate sodium solutions). In response, Rugby Laboratories issued a voluntary recall on August 3, 2017, of the PharmaTech LLC manufactured Diocto Syrup and Diocto Liquid. As a precautionary measure based on additional information received from the FDA, the three distribution firms are recalling all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC.
The distribution firms are notifying their distributors and customers by recall letter and are arranging for return of all recalled products. Consumers, pharmacies, and healthcare facilities that have the product being recalled should stop using and dispensing the product immediately.
