ETHEX & Ther-Rx Recall Lawsuit

sc-no-longer-accepting-cases

On November 7, 2008, ETHEX Corporation initiated an urgent, nationwide recall of five generic drugs that it manufacturers because the pills may contain twice the amount of medication as they should (double thickness). Since that time, additional recalls have been issued by ETHEX Corp. and Ther-RX Corp.

Why were the drugs recalled?

According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and ETHEX Corp., the lots have been recalled as a precaution, due to the possibility that they may contain oversized tablets. Oversized tablets may contain more than the intended levels of the active drug ingredient, which could result in patients receiving as much as about twice the expected dosage of these drugs.

ETHEX Corporation, a subsidiary of KV Pharmaceutical (NYSE: KVa/KVb), is issuing, as previously disclosed by KV Pharmaceutical Company on January 26, 2009, a nationwide voluntary recall of the products identified below (all lots within their expiration dates) at a wholesale or a retail level as a precautionary measure because they may have been manufactured under conditions that did not sufficiently comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Some of these products have had specific lots recalled earlier due to defects found, including oversized tablets delivering higher than labeled doses.

Ther-Rx Corporation, a subsidiary of KV Pharmaceutical Company is issuing a voluntary nationwide recall of prescription prenatal and iron supplement nutritionals as identified below (all lots within their expiration dates) at a wholesale level. The Company is taking this action as a precautionary measure, because the products may have been manufactured under conditions that did not sufficiently comply with current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP).
