Bodico Hand Sanitizer Recall [Canada]

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/36469a-eng.php

Additional information:Bodico Hand Sanitizer
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the following Personal Care Products are subject to this recall:

  • Bodico Hand Sanitizer, 8 fluid ounce pump container, lot B9002
  • Bodico Hand Sanitizer with Aloe and Vitamin E, 8 fluid ounce pump container, lot B9001

Health Canada reminds all consumers that the labels of hand sanitizers advise external use only and as such, the product should never be ingested. Testing undertaken by the province of Ontario’s Centre of Forensic Sciences of two bottles of Bodico Hand Sanitizer associated with the deaths found the product contained methanol, an undeclared ingredient, and not ethyl alcohol, the active ingredient actually listed for the product. Methanol is a highly toxic alcohol that, if ingested, can cause blindness or death. High amounts of methanol applied to the skin can cause irritation and inflammation.

Health Canada is working with the company that makes Bodico Hand Sanitizer and is in the process of independently testing additional samples of the product.

Piperacillin and Tazobactam Drug Recall [US]

FlagUSUS/Silver Spring: Apotex Corp. recalls some Piperacillin and Tazobactam for Injection Drugs due to precipitation and/or crystallization hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/kHSlx

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm349976.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports this recall involves 15 lots of Piperacillin and Tazobactam for Injection, USP 40.5 grams, NDC number 60505-0773-00 to the hospital / healthcare provider / user level.

Hospira, the manufacturer of the recalled drugs, states that administration of precipitated Piperacillin / Tazobactam in an IV bag or IV line may result in local reactions such as phlebitis, renal impairment, end-organ embolism and ischemia, and/or vasculitis (because the precipitate was visible, its particles may be large enough to cause these adverse events). In addition, the precipitation of the drug may not allow delivering a needed therapeutic dose of piperacillin and tazobactam, thus resulting in inadequate treatment of the targeted infection. This could result in adverse health consequences that could range from transient and minor impairment or complaints to permanent impairment of a body function or permanent damage to a body structure.

The affected Piperacillin and Tazobactam for Injection, USP 40.5 grams lots include the following:

  1. Lot Number: 503B015 – Expiry Date: 04/2013
  2. Lot Number: 503B016 – Expiry Date: 04/2013
