Possible adverse reactions prompt recall of stem cell products

In October, Liveyon, a distributor of stem cell products manufactured by Genetech and marketed under the trade name ReGen Series, voluntarily recalled the products in response to reports of possible adverse reactions.

Liveyon immediately discontinued the purchase of any product from Genetech and procured new product from an alternative manufacturer that has been in business for more than 15 years and manufactures the new product in a cGMP compliant facility. Liveyon stated that the new manufacturer is a U.S.-based, FDA-registered, fully licensed and compliant umbilical cord blood/tissue bank accredited by the America Association of Blood Banks (AABB). It is a member of the Be The Match Program and has passed all FDA inspections.

Liveyon resumed distribution of the new product line effective Monday, October 8, 2018.
