Green Valley Drugs Recalls All Sterile Compounded Products

April 12, 2013

Green Valley Drugs issued a recall of all lots of compounded, repackaged, and distributed sterile products. The recall is based on concerns that arose regarding product sterility and quality control after observing clean room personnel and aseptic technique. If the quality and sterility of a compounded product is compromised, patients could develop serious and potentially life-threatening infections. Green Valley Drugs has had no reports of illness or injury attributed to the recalled products. Independent laboratory tests have not indicated any sterility issues.

The recalled products were distributed nationwide. A complete list of recalled products can be found at the company’s website (www.greenvalleymed.com).

Discontinue use of all products and return them to Green Valley Drugs. For more information, contact Green Valley Drugs by phone (702-564-2079) or by email (pharmacy@greenvalleymed.com).
