Drugs recall

19th July 2010

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has stated that the manufacturer LEO Laboratories has recalled "all remaining stock" of Sodium Fusidate 500mg.

The recall is due to contamination of some batches of the drug by glass particles. The intravenous infusion of the drug has been found to have particles which would be too big to get through a needle, but there is a risk that smaller particles could exist in some remaining stock of the drug.
