Cadila Recalls 10K Bottles of Anti-allergy Drug in US
Cadila Healthcare is recalling over 10,000 bottles of an anti-allergy drug in the US because of a mix-up in tablets. Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA, a unit of the company, is recalling 10,200 bottles of promethazine hydrochloride tablets that contain foreign tablets, according to information on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) website. The recall is due to the “presence of atenolol 25 mg tablet mixed into promethazine 25 mg tablet bottles,” the FDA said. The nationwide recall was initiated on May 8. The 25-mg tablets in 100-count bottles were manufactured by Cadila Healthcare and distributed in the US market by Zydus Pharmaceuticals, it added.
