Heartland Repack Services products
Audience: Pharmacists and nursing home administrators
[Posted 10/25/2006] Heartland Repack Services and FDA notified healthcare professionals of a voluntary recall of all products containing a lot number beginning with “K” (example: K12345). Drugs repackaged by Heartland Repack Services are distributed through their own pharmacy services to Omnicare nursing homes and other institutional facilities. Omnicare is responsible for 1.4 million nursing home and healthcare patients in 47 states and Canada. These product lots are distributed in 30, 60, 90 count size boxes and 250 count bags. Both the boxes and bags contain unit dose strips of five tablets per strip. This recall was initiated because there is the potential for mislabeling and packaging mix-up.
Due to incomplete accounting of product subject to this recall, on October 20, 2006 Heartland Repack Services issued a follow-up notice of the July 2006 recall.
