NH Pharmacy Board Says ALL Products from NE Compounding Center in Recall

On Tuesday, The State of New Hampshire Board of Pharmacy recommended that ALL products from New England Compounding Center be returned and not used. NECC manufactures 100s of products ranging from Acetaminophen 200mg suppositories to Zymaxid Optical Solution, please check here for a complete list. The initial recall was limted to the phramacy’s intrathecal methylprednisolone injections and now extends to all products.
The move comes after receiving information from the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, the Massachusetts Board of Pharmacy, and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) of contaminated batches of intrathecal methylprednisolone injections compounded by New England Compounding Center (NECC) located in Framingham MA. NECC had license to ship product into NH, but their NH license was immediately suspended for imminent threat to public health and safety on Friday, October 5, 2012. The company has also voluntarily suspended operations. The contaminated batches have been found to cause numerous cases of fungal meningitis.
