What’s the Problem?

According to the FDA press release, problems were uncovered during an inspection of Front Range Laboratories, which is Avella’s independent third-party testing lab. As a result of these issues, Avella has discontinued its relationship with Front Range. Medications affected by this recall include:
Product Lot Number Expiry
Bevacizumab 1.25 mg/0.05 mL PF 12-20130508@179 11/3/2013
Vancomycin PF (BSS) 1% 12-20130508@181 10/4/2013

Patients who are treated with contaminated doses of these drugs may develop life-threatening bacterial infections. Earlier this year, the FDA stepped up its regulation of compounding pharmacies after a rare fungal meningitis outbreak that killed 63 people and inured more than 750 others was linked to steroid injections processed by the New England Compounding Center in Framingham, Mass.
