Sterile compounded drugs are being recalled again, this time by the Newbern, Tennessee-based Main Street Family Pharmacy. All lots of these items, which were made available to doctors and patients across the country, are affected by the recall, and adverse events have already been reported in conjunction with products from three of those lots. In the seven incidents reported, the patient experienced a skin abscess, and one of those persons’ abscesses looked to involve a fungus. A wide-ranging list of compounded drugs are affected, including injectables, and thus patients who have received anything from Main Street should get in touch with their doctors, especially if they have begun to experience any type of adversity.
