'Foreign matter' in vials prompts compounding pharmacy's drug recall
A Woburn compounding pharmacy has recalled more than a dozen products it made and distributed since Jan. 1, after regulators found "foreign matter" in vials of injectable drugs. The state board that regulates compounding pharmacies ordered Pallimed Solutions, Inc., on March 22 to stop producing drugs that were supposed to be made using sterile processes and to quarantine those in its possession. The company announced Monday morning that it also would recall such drugs that it had distributed since Jan. 1. The pharmacy will continue making non-sterile compounded products.
