Two Antibiotics Recalled by Drug Maker
Two antibiotics have been voluntarily recalled by their manufacturer, Ranbaxy Laboratories Inc., in Jacksonville, Florida due to a small number of complaints received concerning the powdered form of the drugs changing colors when mixed with water. The two drugs, Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium for Oral Suspension (Lot No. 1910779 and 1910782) are currently available in the United States.
While no injuries or deaths have been reported, Ranbaxy reps state the company’s strong commitment to consumer safety has prompted the recall. The FDA is aware of the recall. In July 2009, the FDA recommended the company recall a single lot of acne treatment, Sotret Isotretinoin capsules. The drug had been known to cause side effects similar to that of Accutane, another acne medication, such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn’s Disease, and Ulcerative Colitis.
