What’s the Problem?
August 24, 2017 – The recall was initiated after Centurion Labs was notified by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) that Ninjacof products may have been manufactured in a facility that was contaminated by B. cepacia.
Affected products are Ninjacof Lot# 200N1601 (NDC 23359-032-16) and Ninjacof A with Lot# 201NA1601 (NDC 23359-033-16). The medicine is sold in 473 mL bottles with the expiration date of 11/2018.
Both products were distributed to the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.
Ninjacof and Ninjacof A are used to treat symptoms of the common cold, allergic rhinitis, or other respiratory allergies. Patients with compromised immune systems or chronic lung conditions who use products tainted with B. cepacia could develop severe infections that can not be treated with antibiotics, according to the FDA.
Centurion Labs is recommending that patients, pharmacies, and healthcare facilities stop use of affected Ninjacof products immediately.
To date, no B. cepacia infections or other adverse events have been reported in connection with the recall.
