Drug Recalls

A drug recall is the most effective way to protect the public from a defective or potentially harmful product. A recall is a voluntary action taken by a company at any time to remove a defective drug product from the market.

The list below includes voluntary recalls in which public notification has been issued.

See FDA’s role in drug recalls for more information.
See Recalls, Market Withdrawals, & Safety Alerts for all FDA-regulated products.
For recall notices older than 60 days, see recall and safety alerts archive.

A Terminated Recall is a recall where the FDA has determined that all reasonable efforts have been made to remove or correct the violative product in accordance with the recall strategy, and proper disposition has been made according to the degree of hazard. Recalls that are not indicated as being terminated are either ongoing or completed.
