Drug Recalls

Recalls are actions taken by a firm to remove a product from the market. Recalls may be conducted on a firm's own initiative, by FDA request, or by FDA order under statutory authority. See Definitions of Market Withdrawals and Class I, II, and III recalls. All recalls (Class I, II, and III) can be found in the FDA Enforcement Report

In July 2011, FDA began a pilot program to notify people of drug recalls before they are classified. These unclassified recalls will be published in the Enforcement Report every Wednesday, and will be listed under the heading, “Human Drug Product Recalls Pending Classification.” They will be reposted with their classification once that determination has been made. Send comments or suggestions to CDERRecallPilot@fda.hhs.gov.

If you have a medicine that has been recalled, talk to your health care professional about the best course of action.  Stores generally have a return and refund policy when a company has announced a recall of its products.

NOTE: The recalls on the list are generally Class I., which means there is a reasonable probability that the use of or exposure to a violative product will cause serious adverse health consequences or death.
