Brief description of problem

M & A Pharmachem is recalling the above batches as a precautionary measure, because a small number of pots from some batches have been found to contain discoloured tablets due to fungal contamination. The fungus has been identified as Penicillium citrinum. It is unlikely that any affected tablets will have got to patient level as the discolouration is noticeable on opening affected packs.

 Advice to Healthcare professionals

Stop supplying the batches listed above immediately. Quarantine all remaining stock and return it to your supplier using your supplier’s approved process.
