The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reminding health care providers about safety concerns with all sterile drug products made and distributed by NuVision Pharmacy of Dallas, Texas. Health care providers should not administer any NuVision Pharmacy sterile products to patients because the products’ sterility is not assured. NuVision Pharmacy has repeatedly declined to recall its sterile products. The FDA cannot require NuVision to undertake such a recall. Therefore, the agency reminds health care providers not to use any sterile products from NuVision.
Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA's MedWatch Safety
