Norbrook Laboratories Ltd issues recall of anaesthetic
Wholesalers and veterinary surgeons are being made aware of a product defect recall for Propofol Emulsion for Injection, which is manufactured by Norbrook Laboratories Ltd.
All batches of Propofol Emulsion for Injection 1.0% w/v that are currently on the market are being recalled, due to an issue of coring.
In a statement, the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD) said: ‘An issue of coring has been reported, where the shearing off of a portion of the 20mm bromobutyl bung occurs as the vial is pierced to withdraw the product. This may result in particles from the bung entering the product and potentially being drawn up into the syringe upon extraction of the product from the vial. It may also result in the bung not resealing fully after use.’
The affected UK brand names are Inductofol (licence no: 02000/4274) and Vetofol (licence no: 02000/4244).
