U.S. and Canada Recall of All Products from NC Compounding Pharmacy


The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy has ordered a recall of all lots of non-sterile and sterile products compounded, repackaged, and distributed by Prescription Center Pharmacy located at 915 Hay Street, Fayetteville, NC, between September 10, 2014, and March 10, 2015. This recall order is due the pharmacy’s inability to ensure sterility, stability, and potency for these products.

 

In addition to ordering a recall, the Board of Pharmacy ordered the Prescription Center closed. The Board has not received a complaint of an injury caused by any recalled product, but use of compounded products lacking assurance of sterility, stability, and potency places patients at risk.

 

Prescription Center distributed the recalled compounded products in all fifty (50) states, as well as Canada, between September 10, 2014, and March 10, 2015. Health care providers and patients should stop using all compounded products distributed by Prescription Center immediately and dispose of the products according to state and/or local government guidelines.
