The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports contaminants were observed in vials of the following sterile compounded products:

  • Trimix;

  • Alprostadil;
  • Dmso 50 percent – irrigation (lot 03122013@19); and
  • Bacteriostatic Water for Injection (lot 01072013@28).

The FDA says the specific public health risks of this recall are unknown because the particulate matter has not yet been identified. However, in general, particulate matter has the potential to damage or obstruct blood vessels, which could induce emboli, cause systemic allergic reaction, or cause tissue responses to the foreign material.
