Norfenicol solution recalled amid concerns over sterility
Norbrook Laboratories has issued a recall of Norfenicol 300 mg/ml solution for injection amid concerns about its sterility.
Some vials contain media that is not clear or transparent

Norbrook Laboratories has issued a recall of Norfenicol 300 mg/ml solution for injection amid concerns about its sterility.

The recall affects batch no. 9054-91B Norfenicol 300 mg/ml solution for injection, expiry 31/01/2021

The Veterinary Medicines Directorate said: “We wish to make wholesalers and veterinary surgeons aware that Norbrook Laboratories has issued a recall of Norfenicol 300 mg/ml solution for injection (Vm 02000/4316) for all vial sizes below 250ml. This is a precautionary measure as some of them contain media which was not clear or transparent so sterility cannot be assured.

“Norbrook Laboratories Ltd is contacting wholesale dealers and veterinary surgeons to examine inventory immediately and quarantine products subject to this recall. Other batches of Norfenicol 300 mg/ml solution for injection are not impacted and may continue to be distributed.”

To obtain further information about the recall contact Ms Naomh Thompson +44 02830 264435 or email naomh.thompson@norbrook.co.uk

New road sign to protect small wildlife

News Story 1
 Transport secretary Chris Grayling has unveiled a new road sign to help cut traffic accidents and protect small wildlife, particularly hedgehogs.

Local authorities and animal welfare groups are being asked to identify accident and wildlife hotspots where the sign - which features a hedgehog - should be located.

Government figures show that more than 600 people were injured in road accidents involving animals in 2017, and four people were killed. These figures do not include accidents involving horses. The new sign will be used to warn motorists in areas where there are large concentrations of small wild animals, including squirrels, badgers, otters and hedgehogs.
