ApothéCure Recalls All Sterile Compounded Injectables

April 18, 2013

ApothéCure issued a nationwide recall of all lots of compounded sterile injectables with “Independently tested for sterility” on the vial. The recall is based on concerns with quality control and potential lack of sterility of the products. If the quality and sterility of a compounded product is compromised, patients could develop serious and potentially life-threatening infections. ApothéCure has had no reports of illness or injury attributed to the recalled products.

Discontinue use of all products and return them to ApothéCure. For more information, contact ApothéCure by phone (800-969-6601 or 972-960-6601) or by email (pharmacist@apothecure.com).
