Parsippany, NJ. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA has initiated a voluntary nationwide recall of a single lot of Anagrelide Capsules, USP 0.5 mg (Lot number GD01090), to the consumer level in the United States. This voluntary recall was initiated due to dissolution test failure detected during routine stability testing. No other lots are impacted.

Administration of this product with lower dissolution – taking longer to dissolve once ingested -- may result in decreased effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the drug to exert its platelet-reducing effect. Failed dissolution can result in a slower rate and extent of drug release leading to less anagrelide available in the body. For seriously ill patients with elevated platelet counts, less available anagrelide in the body could increase the risk of clotting (blood coagulation), and clotting or bleeding events such as a heart attack or stroke, which could be life threatening. To date, Teva has not received any product quality complaints or adverse event reports, of this nature, for the recalled lot.

Anagrelide capsules are indicated for the treatment of patients with thrombocythemia, secondary to myeloproliferative neoplasms, to reduce the elevated platelet count and the risk of thrombosis and to ameliorate associated symptoms including thrombo-hemorrhagic events. Information about the affected lot is listed in the table below. It is packed in bottles with 100 Capsules. Teva distributed 4224 bottles nationwide from 07-30-2020 through 09-02-2020 to its wholesale, distributor and retail customers under the label for Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc.

Pfizer is voluntarily recalling five (5) lots of Accupril (Quinapril HCl) tablets distributed by Pfizer to the patient (consumer/user) level due to the presence of a nitrosamine, Nnitroso-quinapril, observed in recent testing above the Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) level.

Nitrosamines are common in water and foods, including cured and grilled meats, dairy products and vegetables. Everyone is exposed to some level of nitrosamines. These impurities may increase the risk of cancer if people are exposed to them above acceptable levels over long periods of time.

Accupril is indicated for the treatment of hypertension, to lower blood pressure.  Accupril is also indicated in the management of heart failure as adjunctive therapy when added to conventional therapy including diuretics and/or digitalis. Accupril has a safety profile that has been established over 30 years. To date, Pfizer is not aware of reports of adverse events that have been assessed to be related to this recall. Pfizer believes the benefit/risk profile of the products remains positive based on currently available data. Although long-term ingestion of Nnitroso-quinapril may be associated with a potential increased cancer risk in humans, there is no immediate risk to patients taking this medication. Patients currently taking the products should consult with their doctor or health care provider about alternative treatment options for them.

Teva Pharmaceuticals has initiated a voluntary nationwide recall of lot 31329657B of IDArubicin Hydrochloride Injection USP 5 mg/5 mL vial, to the user level in the United States. This voluntary recall is initiated based on an internal inspection that found particulate matter in one vial of the product identified as silica and iron oxide. No other vials have been observed to contain this defect. To date, Teva has received no product quality complaints or adverse event reports of this nature for the subject recall lot.

The administration of an injectable product that contains particulate matter may result in local irritation or swelling in response to the foreign material. If the particulate matter reaches the blood vessels it can travel to various organs and block blood vessels in the heart, lungs or brain which can cause stroke and even lead to death. While the health hazard risk could be severe if particulate matter is infused, Teva’s internal health assessment determined that the likelihood of patient harm is remote or unlikely

IDArubicin Hydrochloride Injection USP in combination with other approved anti-leukemic drugs is indicated for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in adults. Information about the affected product is listed in the table below. It is packed in 5 mL Single Dose Vials. Teva distributed 1,565 vials Nationwide from 12-04-2020 through 08-18-2021 to 4 of its Wholesale customers under the label for Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc.

Drug Recall Process

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has jurisdiction over food, drugs, cosmetics, medical devices and other products and services as a monitor over product recalls. In most cases recalls are done voluntarily by the manufacturer or the distributor of the product. In some cases, a company will discover that one of its products is defective and will recall it. In other cases, the FDA will notify a company that one of its products is defective and will suggest or request a recall.

The FDA has guidelines for companies to follow in recalling defective products. These guidelines explain that the FDA expects these firms to take full responsibility for product recalls, including follow-up checks to assure that recalls are successful. The guidelines categorize all recalls into one of the three classes according to the level of hazard involved.

  • Class I recalls are for dangerous or defective products that predictably could cause serious health problems or death.
  • Class II recalls are for products that might cause a temporary health problem, or pose only a slight threat of a serious nature.
  • Class III recalls are for products that are unlikely to cause any adverse health reaction, but that violates FDA regulations.
