Recall On Franck’s Eye Products

An immediate and urgent extended recall has been placed on all human and veterinary sterile preparations distributed by Franck’s Compounding Pharmacy from November 21, 2011 to May 21, 2012.

This extended recall was put in place by Franck’s after the FDA notified them that samplings from the clean room contained fungal growth and the presence of microorganisms.  The lack of sterility may cause eye infections in patients being treated with the products.  Reports of infections have been made by patients treated with Brilliant Blue G (BBG) and injections of Franck’s products containing triamcinolone.

The FDA is aware of this recall and is investigating reports of eye infections in patients that were treated with Franck’s products.

“If any of these sterile preparations remains under your control, it is essential that you do not use them and that employing appropriate practices, you destroy all such sterile preparations and all remaining portions of such sterile preparations,” Franck’s is advising.
