Taxotere (docetaxel)

Audience: Wholesalers, hospital pharmacists, and oncology healthcare professionals

Aventis Pharmaceuticals has initiated a voluntary recall of Taxotere® (docetaxel) for Injection Concentrate 20-mg active and diluent vials. The lot numbers for this recall are: 0P273 (active) which was packaged together with diluent vials with the following lot numbers: 0T446 (diluent) or 0T449 (diluent). It has been determined that the Taxotere 20mg vial containing the active ingredient may have inadvertently been labeled as a “diluent” vial. Aventis has received one product complaint related to this mislabeling.
