M & A Pharmachem is recalling two batches of 1×1000 paracetamol tablets, because a small number of pots from each batch have been found to contain discoloured tablets due to fungal contamination
The affected batches are:
|Batch number||Expiry Date||Pack size||First distributed|
|0110||June 2023||1 x 1000||6 September 2018|
|0174||October 2023||1 x 1000||14 March 2019|
The fungi have been identified as Penicillium citrinium and Penicillium brevicompactum. It is unlikely that any affected tablets will have got to patient level as the discolouration is noticeable on opening affected packs.
Dispensers are asked to quarantine all remaining stock and return it to your supplier.
