On March 20, the US FDA announced the recall of 56 lots of Pleo homeopathic drug products by Terra-Medica, as the agency determined that they have the potential to contain penicillin or derivatives of penicillin, which may be produced during the fermentation process.
The affected products are: Pleo-FORT, Pleo-QUENT, Pleo-NOT, Pleo-STOLO, Pleo-NOTA-QUENT, and Pleo-EX. In case of exposure to penicillin of patients allergic to beta-lactam antibiotics, even at low levels, allergic reactions can be caused ranging from mild rashes to severe and life-threatening anaphylactic reactions. The specific products are in liquid, tablet, capsule, ointment, and suppository forms.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “We are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning homeopathic drug products and inform the public.

As the FDA recommends “Consumers and distributors that have product which is subject to the recall should stop using the products and return them to the point of purchase.” And the agency adds “Terra-Medica is notifying its customers by letter and email and is arranging for return of all recalled products.”
