San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on Marcaine.
The FDA announced on June 18, the voluntary recall for one lot of Marcaine (Bupivacaine HCI Injection, USP), 0.5 percent, 30 ML, Single-Dose, Preservative-Free, by Hospira, due to visible particulates. The affected lot number is 33-545-DD and was distributed from November 2013 through March 2014.
This recall is based on a confirmed customer report of particulate embedded in the glass vial as well as visible particulate in the solution attributed by the company to a supplier’s glass defect.
Administration of the specific product can lead to a delay in therapy. Moreover, exposure to strong magnetic fields (e.g. MRI) could potentially dislodge the particulate causing tissue damage.
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 Marcaine and inform the public. For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”
The FDA advises consumers “Anyone with an existing inventory should immediately stop use and quarantine any affected product. In addition, customers should inform potential users of this product in their organizations of this notification.” And the Agency adds “Hospira will be notifying its direct distributors/customers via a recall letter and will arrange for impacted product to be returned to Stericycle for returns processing.”
