Sterile Drug Products Recalled by Nora Apothecary

Nora Apothecary & Alternative Therapies has announced a multi-state recall of all sterile drug products compounded by the pharmacy that have not reached the expiration date listed on the product. The recall is being initiated due to concerns associated with quality control processes that present a lack of sterility assurance and were observed during a recent FDA inspection.

The recall includes sterile products that Nora Apothecary & Alternative Therapies supplied to patients and offices of licensed medical professionals. Specifically, the recall includes approximately 95 dosage units of sterile compounded products that the pharmacy supplied to offices of medical professionals located within Indiana. Though some patients that received products from those medical professionals may be live in states other than Indiana. The recall also includes approximately 400 prescriptions compounded for patients within Indiana and four other states: four prescriptions for patients in Illinois; and one prescription each for patients in Ohio, Florida and Tennessee.

The compounded products that are subject to the recall are those products within their expiration date that were compounded and dispensed by the pharmacy on or before Friday, April 19, 2013.
