FDA's MedWatch Safety Alerts: January 2010


McNeil has now applied broader criteria to identify and remove all product lots that it believes may be potentially affected, even if there are no consumer complaints about them.

The risk: The health effects of the compound believed to cause the symptoms have not been well studied. To date, all of the observed events reported were temporary and not serious.


  • If you purchased a recalled product, stop using it.
  • Contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare at 888-222-6036 or at www.mcneilproductrecall.com6 for instructions on how to get a refund or replacement, and how to return or dispose of the product.
  • Contact your health care professional if you have medical concerns or questions.

Recall: Insulin Syringes

Nipro Medical Corp. has recalled all GlucoPro Insulin Syringes with expiration dates before 2011-11 (November 1, 2011). The recall does not include the GlucoPro syringe specific for use with the Amigo Insulin pump.

The risk: These syringes may have needles that detach from the syringe. The needles can become stuck in the insulin vial, push back into the syringe, or remain in the skin after injection.


  • Stop using GlucoPro Insulin Syringes and return them to the place of purchase for reimbursement.
  • If you have questions, call Nipro Medical Corp. at 305-599-7174, ext. 249.
