The Henderson, Nevada-based Green Valley Drugs has announced the recall of every one of their compounded sterile items because of worries that said sterility cannot be guaranteed. Were a patient to be exposed to a product that isn’t sterile, they might be privy to a potentially deadly infection. No instances of such have been reported at this time. Green Valley issued the recall after potential safety issues were identified while monitoring aseptic methods and workers in the clean room. Available across the country, each compounded item should be returned to Green Valley. They should not be given to patients. If an infection or other dangerous incident develops in association with an already-administered item, prompt medical intervention should be given and a report should be made to the Food and Drug Administration’s MedWatch program.
