- In drug Recalls
On the heels of a recall of one lot of their skin care product, pharmaceutical manufacturer Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has also announced that they are voluntarily recalling two lots of the antibiotic drug from the U.S. market. Drug maker Ranbaxy recently recalled one lot of their 40 milligram Sotret Isotretinoin capsules, a drug that can help acne sufferers have cleaner skin. The company’s second recall involves Lots No 1910779 and 1910782, both with an expiration date of May 2010.
The antibiotic is designed to be mixed with water to form a lotion that can be applied directly to the skin. The company issued the recall after some users complained that when the product was mixed with water, it changed color in ways that previous batches had not. It is unknown if anyone has been injured or disfigured by Sotret Isotretinoin, but anyone with unused product is encouraged to stop using the skin treatment immediately and contact the manufacturer. The FDA is investigating the company for failing to comply with recommended manufacturing practices at two of its plants.
