It turns out Reliable Drug Pharmacy’s products may not be so reliable after all.
The FDA recently issued a press release about Reliable Drug Pharmacy’s voluntary recall of all unexpired lots of compounded products due to potential mislabeling and concerns over quality assurance.
All recalled products have a label that has the Reliable Drug name on it, as well as the expiration date. These items were distributed between September 24, 2015, and March 24, 2016.
Individuals who are unsure of the expiration date of their products can contact the pharmacy for more information.
These items would have been distributed to patients and veterinarians in California, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Michigan.
The recall was issued after several onsite inspections by the FDA.
Reliable Drug Pharmacy said in a statement that it “deeply regrets any disruption” that the recall and temporary suspension of compounding services may have on its customers.
Patients who have the recalled products should immediately stop using them and contact the pharmacy to arrange for a return of the unused product.
In addition, the FDA cautioned that patients should seek help from a medical professional if they experience any problems that may have resulted from the products.
The FDA is asking health care professionals and patients to report any adverse effects to its MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online, or by mail or fax.
