Adcock Ingram recalls two batches of ARVs after packaging error

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Adcock Ingram, South Africa's largest pharmaceutical company, has recalled two of its antiretroviral products after investigations revealed tablets had been packed in the wrong cartons. Blisters of Batch 1J of Adco-Nevirapine tablets (200mg nevirapine, expiry January 2009) were found to have been packed in certain packs of Batch 1Z of Adco-Zidovudine tablet (300mg zidovudine, expiry November 2008). Adcock Ingram said blisters of the Adco-Nevirapine tablets were clearly labelled with the correct name and expiry date, but it has recalled both batches as a precautionary measure. The company has appealed to patients taking the medicine to consult their doctors and return products with the specific batch numbers immediately.
