Cantrell Drug Co. announces nationwide recall of all sterile drug products

Cantrell Drug Company is voluntarily recalling all lots of unexpired sterile drug products to the hospital and user level because they lack sterility assurance. The recalled products were distributed to health care facilities nationwide, except to Connecticut, Hawaii, South Carolina, and Vermont. 

The affected products include all lots distributed from February 16, 2017, to July 19, 2017, remaining within expiry, and they would be packaged in a syringe or I.V. bag.  Administration of a drug product intended to be sterile that is not sterile could result in serious infections that may be life-threatening.

To date, Cantrell has not received any reports of adverse events.
