LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida-based compounding pharmacy is voluntarily recalling all lots of its sterile non-expired drug products sold nationwide over concerns the products are not sterile and may contain bacteria.
Food and Drug Administration officials on Sunday encouraged health care providers who have received sterile products from Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy to quarantine the products.
The recall includes a few dozen sterile products. The majority are injectable drugs.
The FDA identified gram-negative bacteria in the products, which can cause disease. But officials said the bacteria do not usually cause infection in humans.
An email and phone call to the company were not immediately returned Sunday.
