HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Apotex Australia, in consultation with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), have given notice of a drug recall of:
Zoledronic acid 5mg/100mL
The only affected batch is: PO1299 with an expiry date of March 2017.
This recall has been initiated due to the potential for particulates to form in the solution after long-term storage. This may result in a reduction in the quantity of active ingredient.
Please inspect your stocks and quarantine all products from the batch stated 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 Apotex Australia on 1800 276 839.
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.
