Product DescriptionEliquis (apixaban) 5 mg Tablets
On June 10, Bristol-Myers Squibb announced a voluntary recall of one lot (#HN0063) of Eliquis 5 mg tablets. This lot was distributed nationwide in the U.S. to wholesalers and retail pharmacies in February 2017. Bristol-Myers Squibb is taking this precautionary measure based on a single customer complaint that a bottle labeled as Eliquis5 mg was found to contain Eliquis 2.5 mg tablets. No other lots are impacted by this recall.
This recall is to the retail/dispensing level and not to the consumer level. This recall is under way and is currently being executed. The recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Patients should not stop taking Eliquis without consulting with their physician.
