Hospira Recalls Naloxone Over Particulate Contamination

Opioid Overdose Antidote Naloxone Recalled Due to Particulate Matter

Opioid Overdose Antidote Naloxone Recalled Due to Particulate Matter

A spokesperson for the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources says this recall does not affect the 34,000 doses of naloxone the state is distributing to first responders.

According to the FDA, the manufacturer of opioid overdose antidote Naloxone, has issued a recall.

Hospira Inc., which is a Pfizer company, said the potential presence of embedded and loos particulate matter could cause a patient to experience adverse effects such as irritation, allergic reactions, pulmonary dysfunction or others. Hospira says that there is a low chance people will experience a wide range of adverse health effects but made a decision to recall the drug just in case.

Hancock Public Health, which provides naloxone kits to the community, says its kits are not affected by a nationwide recall.

See the full recall details. Adverse events may be reported to FDA via its MedWatch program.

Amazon picked up one package, while BT secured the final batch of games to add to their original tally. The infrastructure and market potential needs testing and this gives Amazon an early mover advantage.

As per the FDA, those who administer the Naloxone drug should check it for any particulate matter or discoloration before injecting it to a person.

Naloxone can quickly restore normal respiration to someone whose breathing has slowed or stopped due to opioids.

Hospira has notified retailers, hospitals and distributors of the recall to arrange for returns and exchanges on any impacted product.

The affected dosages have lot numbers of 72680LL and 76510LL and were sold to wholesalers, distributors and hospitals in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Guam between February 2017 and February 2018.

The CDC released a report in March that shows that 115 Americans are dying every day from the opioid epidemic.
