Unique Pharmaceuticals, Ltd. Announces a Voluntary Nationwide Recall of all Sterile Compounded Preparations Within Their Expiry Period Due to a Lack of Sterility Assurance


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 19, 2014 – Unique Pharmaceuticals, Ltd., (“Unique” or “the Company”) today announced a voluntary nationwide recall of all sterile drug preparations compounded by the outsourcing facility that have not reached the expiration date listed on the products. Unique is initiating the recall due to FDA’s concerns associated with Unique’s compounding facilities and compounding processes that FDA contends present a lack of sterility assurance and were observed during recent FDA inspections.

In the event a sterile product is compromised, patients are at risk for serious and possible life-threatening infections. To date, Unique has received no reports of injury or illness associated with the use of its sterile preparations. Patient safety is Unique’s highest priority, and Unique has proceeded with this voluntary action out of an abundance of caution.

The recall includes all sterile compounded preparations that Unique has supplied to its customers within expiry. Non-sterile preparations are not affected by this recall. The affected products were distributed in syringes, vials, and bags.

The preparations covered by this recall were distributed nationwide. Until further notice, health care providers should stop using all lots of sterile products prepared by Unique that are within their expiry period and return them to the Company. Continue reading
