AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on Potassium Chloride.
The FDA announced on September 17, that Baxter International Inc. recalled one lot of Potassium Chloride Injection 10mEq per 100mL due to a labeling error on the shipping cartons. Potassium Chloride, administered intravenously, is used to treat potassium deficiency.
The reason for the recall is based on a labeling error on the shipping cartons in a single lot where, for this specific lot number of Potassium Chloride Injection 10mEq per 100mL, product code 2B0826 , they may contain units of Gentamicin Sulfate Injection, 80 mg in 100 mL, product code 2B0862. This may pose a potential risk of medication error or delay in therapy in cases where high concentration potassium chloride is required.
The affected lot is Lot # P318220, NDC # 0338-0709-48.
