Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy Recalls All Sterile Products

April 22, 2013

Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy issued a nationwide recall of all lots of compounded sterile products, including injectables and ophthalmic agents. The recall is based on concerns with quality control and potential lack of sterility of the products. During a recent FDA inspection, a sampled product tested positive for a Gram negative bacterial contaminant. If the quality and sterility of a compounded product is compromised, patients could develop serious and potentially life-threatening infections. Balanced Solutions Compounding Pharmacy has had no reports of illness or injury attributed to the recalled products. A complete list of recalled products can be found at the company’s website (www.bshrx.com).

Discontinue use of all products and return them to Balanced Solutions. For more information, contact Balanced Solutions by phone (877-306-0008 or 407-936-2998) or by email (pharmacist@bshrx.com).
