Title Bovine and Swine Drugs Recalled Due to Potential Sterility Issues
Introduction MPL Laboratories provides sterility and microbial testing of pharmaceuticals, homeopathic medicines and other consumer products to help prevent costly recalls and protect people and animals from exposure risks.
Sparta, NJ, April 24th, 2019

Last month, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) posted information about the recall of multiple lots of three injectable drugs used on cattle and pigs. The recall to the veterinarian and consumer levels of these products that were distributed nationwide was issued as a precautionary measure after the company announced product sterility could not be assured.

The recall notice states, “There is a concern that if the sterility of these products has been compromised, use of these products could result in introduction of infectious agents to the animal. This may result in the need for medical intervention(s) including, but not limited to the need for supportive care, antibiotics, and/or antifungal drugs.” Fortunately, at the time of the recall notice, the drug manufacturer had not received any reports of adverse events related to the injectable parasiticides and the drug for the treatment and control of swine and bovine respiratory diseases.

The experts at MPL Laboratories work diligently to analyze products so sterility issues are avoided and don’t reach consumers. Their renowned scientists have decades of experience testing pharmaceuticals for humans and animals, homeopathic products, cosmetics, foods and other consumer products. MPL’s FDA registered and DEA licensed facility offers cGMP and ISO 17025 compliant sterility and microbiology testing. The company’s advanced instrumentation and expertise allows it to rapidly identify issues in the manufacturing process, raw ingredients and finished products that could cause sterility, microbial or other product quality issues. These and other testing services are available to manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers, regulatory agencies and healthcare providers.
