Novo Nordisk is recalling one batch of its Fiasp FlexTouch 100 units/mL solution for injection pre-filled pen as a precautionary measure due to the presence of particles in a small number of samples.

The affected batch number is HP50949, released on Thursday 22 March.  

This should be quarantined and returned to your supplier. There is no requirement to contact patients. If you receive queries about this issue from patients, however, please advise them to follow the advice given in the patient information leaflet regarding checking their insulin before use:

‘Check that the insulin in your pen is clear and colourless. Look through the insulin window. If the insulin looks cloudy, do not use the pen.’

For medical information and stock enquiries, contact Novo Nordisk customer care on  tel: 0845 600 5055, or send an email.
