Recalls

Recalls of pharmaceuticals are actually quite common and may be issued for a variety of reasons. Some products are voluntarily recalled by a manufacturer based on adverse event reports, FDA scrutiny, or public outcry. Other products are recalled pursuant to order by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  Still other products may be subject to a recall more limited in scope, such as a single batch of potentially tainted medication or a flaw in the functioning of single part. The maker cures the defect, and the product remains on the market. Some manufacturers are known to temporarily suspend sales of a product while it evaluates the validity of complaints.

Recalls

Both voluntarily and involuntary recalls usually occur after a long period of public scrutiny, FDA safety announcements, enhanced warnings, and media coverage. With so many drugs and medical devices on the market, it's important to know which are catching the attention of regulators in order to make informed decisions about your own medical treatment.
