The Florida Department of Health remains vigilant in its efforts to ensure the safety of the public.

FDA alerts health care professionals and patients not to use products from the Prescription Center pharmacy in Fayetteville, N.C.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is joining the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy (NC BOP) to urge health care professionals, including veterinarians, and patients not to use products made and distributed by the Prescription Center pharmacy, located at 915 Hay St., Fayetteville, North Carolina.

In an inspection conducted in March by the NC BOP, state inspectors observed significant deficiencies that raise concerns about the company’s ability to assure the sterility, stability and potency of the sterile and non-sterile human and veterinary drug products that it produced. The Prescription Center has been closed by order of the NC BOP, and the NC BOP has ordered a recall of all lots of sterile and non-sterile products compounded or repackaged and distributed by the Prescription Center between Sept. 10, 2014, and March 10, 2015.
