Ketorolac Tromethamine Injection Recalled by American Regent
American Regent is conducting a voluntary recall on all lots of Ketorolac Tromethamine Injection, NDC# 0517-0601-25 15 mg/mL 1mL Single Dose Vial. This is an extension of a voluntary recall of all unexpired lots initiated in October of 2009.
Ketorolac Tromethamine Injection is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, NSAID, used to control moderate to severe pain in adults. The voluntary recall comes due to particulates that may be present as a result of crystallization. The company is concerned with the potentially dangerous side effects that may result if a contaminated dose is administered. Some of the dangers include:
Obstructed blood vessels leading to pulmonary embolism or thrombosis
