Prescription prenatal vitamin and iron supplements have been added to previous recalls of a large number of generic drug products distributed by Ethex Corporation, a subsidiary of KV Pharmaceutical.
In total, more than 60 generic drug products have been recalled to wholesalers and two generic drug products, Hydromorphone HCI and Metoprolol Succinate, recalled to retailer level, according to a company news release.
The products are being recalled, because they may have been made under conditions that didn't comply with good manufacturing practices.
Patients taking these drug products should continue taking them in accordance with their prescriptions, because the risk of suddenly stopping needed medication may endanger their health, Ethex said.
People who've experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using the recalled products should contact their physician or health care provider. More information is available at www.kvpharmaceutical.com.
