Balanced Solutions Compounding Recalls Unsanitary Injections

En Español

Many patients depend upon medications to remedy to their illnesses. But, what if these solutions could actually be causing further implications and even infections? Recent reports from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration demonstrate this concern as experts encountered a gram negative bacteria in a sample from a chromium chloride injection at Balance Solutions Compounding Pharmacy, LLC. Due to possible risks associated with the contaminated product, on April 17, 2013 Balanced Solutions Compounding voluntarily recalled all unexpired products that had been compounded and sterilized at the pharmacy.

A complete list of withdrawn products may be found online through the FDA here or through Balance Solutions Compounding Pharmacy, LLC.
