Pharmaceutical Recall

Posted on in Defective Medical Devices

When purchasing a medical product, it is expected that the product will be safe, functioning, and helpful. The Food and Drug Administration exists to regulate the safety of these products. However, when a product is found to be unsafe after it has been used by the public, the FDA can post product recalls.

A multi-state recall of drug products that were supposed to be guaranteed sterile by the Nora Apothecary & Alternative Therapies pharmacy has been announced. These products are not yet expired, but since they were compounded and delivered on or before Friday, April 19, 2013, the pharmacy cannot guarantee they are safe. Quality control process is to blame, as well as the fact they were not able to keep the sterility assurance during a recent FDA inspection.

Though there have been no reports of injury or illness, they chose to announce a voluntary recall as a precaution in order to insure no issues do arise. According to the press release that announced the recall, “Patients are at increased risk for serious infections in the event a sterile product is compromised.”

The products were supplied to patients and licensed medical professionals in the Indiana area. Nora Apothecary & Alternative Therapies is taking full responsibility in contacting people via email, mail, fax or personal visits to get the products returned to the pharmacy.

If you or someone you know has used this product and suffered because of it for any reason, contact a defective medical attorney in the Illinois area who is experienced in handling defective medical product cases.

It is the responsibility of a pharmacy to ensure all products that leave their facility are safe and sterile, and your attorney can hold them liable for their mistake. You can potentially be compensated for your pain and suffering. It is important to discuss your case with a highly qualified Illinois defective medical products lawyer.
