Cleviprex Lot Recall
There has been a nationwide recall of eleven lots of Cleviprex (clevidipine butyrate) injectable emulsion, indicated for treatment of hypertension. The recall is due to the potential presence of particulate matter found to be inert stainless steel particles. The particles could theoretically reduce blood flow in capillaries, cause mechanical damage to some tissues, or initiate acute or chronic inflammatory reactions. Reduced blood supply to tissues may lead to ischemia or organ insufficiency in the brain, kidney, liver, heart or lungs.
