The N.C. Board of Pharmacy has issued a recall for products made by a lab in Fayetteville and distributed nationwide, after inspectors determined the lab wasn’t testing its products.
The recall of products from the Prescription Center Pharmacy on Hay Street in Fayetteville is being broadcast nationwide, because the lab was filling prescriptions in all 50 states, said board spokeswoman Krystal Brashears.
“They were shipping across the state and into other states as well,” Brashears said.
The board ordered the pharmacy closed and the recall after its inspectors determined the lab wasn’t testing its products to ensure sterility, stability and potency. The board says it has not received any reports of illnesses or injury caused by the lab’s products.
The recall covers medications for humans and animals that were compounded, repackaged and distributed by Prescription Center Pharmacy between Sept. 10, 2014 and March 10, 2015. The pharmacy’s name and address should appear on the label.
People with products covered by the recall are urged to dispose of them according to state or local guidelines. For questions, call the Board of Pharmacy at 919-246-1050.
