Medical Products Recalled Due to Mold

From the WebMD Archives

Potential mold contamination has led to a recall of all medical products compounded at Med Prep Consulting, Inc. in New Jersey.

The recall was announced by Med Prep after a Connecticut hospital notified the company that mold had been found in one of its products, according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration news release.

The affected products are used by hospitals and health care professionals at doctor's practices or clinics. None of the products are sold directly to patients at retail stores or to home care patients.

The products packaged in plastic infusion bags, plastic infusion devices, plastic syringes and glass vials were shipped directly to regional hospital pharmacies in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Delaware. Products packaged in plastic syringes only were distributed nationwide to doctor's practices and clinics, the FDA said.

All facilities that received the recalled Med Prep products have been notified and instructed to remove and return the product to the company.
