Notification of Stolen Cargo Having Zydus Generic Drug Products

 

FDA posts press releases and other notices from firms as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties.

May 25th, 2010:  Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations (FDA), and other law enforcement officials to recover cases of their generic drug products that were stolen from a truck stop in their carrier’s location in Memphis on 21st May 2010.  The list of products stolen is attached.

 

Not all cases with the indicated batch numbers were in the stolen shipment, and some have been safely delivered from Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA Inc to retailers, wholesalers or institutions.

 

These medicines require a prescription for purchase.  Practitioners, pharmacies, and consumers are advised to purchase Zydus products only from well-established, trusted and reputable sources and to be aware that an unusually low price is often an indication that a product has been stolen.  Additionally, all pharmaceutical products should always be checked for signs of tampering or damage prior to purchase and/or use.  Pharmacists and other health care professionals should not use the product if it has been removed from the sealed bottle or container, if the induction seal has been compromised. 

Anyone who has information regarding this incident or has received suspicious or unsolicited offers for the affected Zydus products after the date of the theft is encouraged to contact the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Criminal Investigations at 1-800-551-3989 or by visiting the OCI Web Site (http://www.fda.gov/OCI).

Retailers, wholesalers and institutions who receive their product directly from Zydus are not affected by this notification.

 

 

Storage condition: Store at 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F)[See USP Controlled Room Temperature].

All Bottles are sealed with tamper evident heat seal printed with 'sealed for your protection'.
