Dr Reddy's Recalls 8,000 Bottles of Generic Drug in US Over Packaging Error

Dr Reddy's Laboratories is recalling over 8,000 bottles of a generic medication used to prevent rejection of a transplanted organ from the US market due to a packaging error, according to the US Food & Drug Administration.

The Hyderabad-based drug major is recalling 8,280 bottles of Tacrolimus capsules from the US market for "presence of foreign tablets/capsules" in the affected lot.

One 0.5 mg Tacrolimus capsule was found in a bottle of 1 mg Tacrolimus capsules, the USFDA stated in its latest Enforcement Report.
The affected lot was produced at Dr Reddy's Bachupally-based plant near Hyderabad.

New Jersey-based Dr Reddy's Laboratories, Inc has initiated the nationwide (US) Class II recall on December 15, 2023.

As per the USFDA, a Class II recall is initiated in a situation in which use of, or exposure to, a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote.
