HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Actelion Pharmaceuticals Australia are conducting a recall of its Veletri® Consumables Kit with batch numbers 0309757 and 0309991.
This recall is a precautionary measure in response to concerns regarding the integrity of the water for injections bottle. It has been identified that the B. Braun Water for Injections® contained in these batches may leak, which could lead to bacterial contamination. There have not been any reports of infection as a result of this issue.
Patients should be advised to continue their treatment. Water for injections from the affected batches may be replaced with an equivalent product.
Please inspect your stocks and quarantine all products from the batches listed above for return to your supplier for a refund.
Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units for one month. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.
Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies, or Actelion Pharmaceuticals Australia on (02) 9486 4600.
Information regarding expected dates for supply may vary subject to delays which are out of our control. HPS Pharmacies does not accept responsibility for such changes but will endeavour to keep our clients updated as information is made available from drug manufacturers or wholesalers.
