Do Not Use Alcohol Pads or Benzalkonium Chloride Antiseptic Towelettes Made by Foshan, Warns FDA – Drug for nerve pain boosts high for opioid abusers. (866) 348-2889
FDA is alerting health care providers and patients to not use alcohol pads or benzalkonium chloride antiseptic towelettes made by Foshan Flying Medical Products Co, Ltd, located in China, due to the lack of sterility assurance and other quality issues. These products are distributed by Total Resources International, of Walnut, CA, and Simple Diagnostics, Inc, of Williston Park, NY. The use of these alcohol pads and antiseptic towelettes could cause infections, notes a safety alert.
FDA placed all drug products made by Foshan on import alert on May 23, 2017, to stop these products from entering the US. However, FDA is concerned these products might still be in distribution in the US. FDA also sent Foshan a warning letter on August 1, 2017, for violations of current good manufacturing practice regulations.
