B. cepacia contamination causes expanded recall

Based on additional information from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), last week’s recall of Diocto Liquid and Diocto Syrup was expanded to include all liquid drug products and dietary supplements manufactured by PharmaTech LLC and distributed by Rugby Laboratories, Leader Brand, and Major Pharmaceuticals. The nationwide recall resulted from adverse event reports to FDA of Burkholderia cepacia infections in patients. Read the FDA safety alert.
