Sagent Pharmaceuticals Recalls Zoledronic Acid Injectable

http://www.pharmabiz.com/NewsDetails.aspx?aid=80756&sid=2

Sagent Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company who develops, markets and manufactures pharmaceutical products and injectables, conducted a nationwide recall of two lots of its Zoledronic Acid injection (5 mg/100 mL premix bag,). The company decided to voluntarily recall its product after it discovered four leaking premix bags as a result of a patient complaint. The Zoledronic Acid injection is a bisphosphonate that is used in both men and women for the treatment of Paget's bone disease. The particular lot numbers that are being recalled (numbers 30076 and 30077) were distributed to hospitals, wholesalers and distributors nationwide from October 9, 2013 to February 18, 2014. Although the company has yet to become aware of any adverse patient events from the use of its product, the defect in the premix bag can result in a lack of sterility assurance. Therefore, all customers have been directed to discontinue distribution, notify users of the lots and quarantine and return the recalled product.

American consumers and distributors have a right to expect products to be reasonably safe for their intended use. Pharmaceutical manufacturers must meet this standard or their products pose a dangerous risk to the community at large, whether it be large hospitals, small drug stores, or the everyday consumer who is taking the drug from the comfort of their home. When unsafe drugs harm or affect individuals, the manufacturer of that drug must be held accountable and they are often found negligent for their production of unsafe drugs.
