NEW YORK (AP) — The FDA has announced a recall of all products produced and distributed for sterile use by Specialty Compounding LLC over concerns about bacterial infections
The Cedar Park, Texas, company is recalling all lots of its unexpired sterile compounded medications sold since May 9.
The recall announced Sunday by the FDA follows reports of bacterial infections affecting 15 patients at two Texas hospitals — Corpus Christi Medical Center Doctors Regional and Corpus Christi Medical Center Bay Area. Those cases involved treatment including IV infusions of calcium gluconate from Specialty Compounding.
Experts say there's a potential association between the infections and the medication.
Details are available by calling Specialty Compounding at 1-512-219-0724.
