Huge recall affects inpatient hospital pharmacies

Hundreds of drug products repackaged for hospital inpatients by Aidapak Services have been recalled because of the possibility of contamination of nonpenicillin products with beta-lactam antibiotics, FDA said. A 317-page PDF lists the affected products and lots. These include all repackaged products from this company.

Patients with hypersensitivities to penicllins or cephalosporins are at risk of reactions if exposed to cross-contaminated products.
