All sterile products manufactured by the St. Petersburg, Florida-based The Compounding Shop are being recalled because said sterility cannot be guaranteed. The move was made following a Food and Drug Administration inspection of the company’s facilities that highlighted conditions which could lead to the sterility of the compounded items being compromised. This is the latest in a long line of recalls issued on sterile products after a widespread outbreak last year brought to light certain inconsistencies with how such companies were monitored by authorities. In order to prevent a patient from suffering an infection, healthcare professionals are being asked to check their supply of drugs to see if they have received anything from The Compounding Shop. If so, the products should not be administered to patients.
