HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Orion Laboratories Pty Ltd is conducting a sponsor initiated recall of:

Fentanyl Intranasal Solution 600 microgram/2mL (non sterile aqueous solution)
Batch No: D001
Expiry Date: Oct 2014

The crimps on some vials in this batch are not sufficiently strong to protect against tampering. There is no impact on the quality of the solution.

This recall notice does not affect any other delivery forms of fentanyl or medicines
supplied by Orion.

Please retain this notice in a prominent position for one month in case stock is in transit, including other related business units.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies or Orion Laboratories Pty Ltd on 08 9441 7800.
