FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – August 7, 2015 – Moses Lake, Washington –This is an update by Moses Lake Professional Pharmacy of Moses Lake, Washington of a prior press release issued July 24, 2015, relating to the recall of certain unexpired sterile compounded drugs. The purpose of this updated press release is to include a corrected and complete listing of affected drugs. Patients and physicians should disregard the press release issued on July 24, 2015.

Moses Lake Professional Pharmacy is voluntarily recalling human and veterinary sterile compounded drugs which are unexpired to the consumer level due to lack of sterility assurance.

The company has not received any reports of product contamination or adverse events to date, and is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution following a recent inspection which identified an issue with sterility assurance. If there is contamination in products intended to be sterile, patients are at risk of serious infections which may be life threatening.

The recalled products were made from 7/21/2014 through 7/21/2015, and dispensed to patients or distributed to physicians for further administering to patients in the states of Arizona, Idaho, Florida, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. All recalled products have a label that includes the pharmacy name and the name of the compounded drug product.

The recall does not pertain to any non-sterile compounded medications prepared by the pharmacy or to products compounded after July 21, 2015.

All unexpired lots of the following sterile compounded products are subject to the recall:
