Mass. Pharmacy Recalling Some Compounded Products

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) – A Massachusetts pharmacy has issued a voluntary recall of some sterile compounding products following an inspection by state and federal officials.

Pallimed Solutions Inc., of Woburn, said Monday the recall was a precautionary measure involving certain items that had been dispensed since the beginning of the year.

The company said there were no reports of any illnesses or injuries. It said it issued the recall after a recent unannounced inspection by the state Board of Pharmacy and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The state issued a cease-and-desist order after the inspection.

The company said the recall does not involve its non-sterile compounding products.

The state stepped up inspections of compounding pharmacies after a deadly fungal meningitis outbreak was linked to a steroid produced at another Massachusetts company, New England Compounding Center.
