PRODUCT / LOT NUMBER / EXPIRATION DATE:
Carton Lot No.
Vial Lot No.
Lots 8-IFB-005, 8-IFB-006, and 8-IFB-007 were found to be subpotent, after assaying as 87%-89%, at 30 days following reconstitution with sterile Bacteriostatic Water for Injection. Lot 9-IFB-001 was withdrawn as a precautionary measure because of the potential that this batch would not meet the product quality specification for assay prior to its expiration date. All of the lots are within the product quality specification for assay when tested immediately upon reconstitution.
