This recall is only for Naloxone used in syringes, and not the nasal spray.
Drugmaker Hospira issued a nationwide recall for two lots of its injectable opioid overdose antidote Naloxone over the potential presence of embedded and loose particulate matter on the syringe plunger.
According to the company, the risk of developing adverse events is low, and that risk is reduced because the product's label directs users to visually inspect the product prior to administration.
The product, a syringe injection, was distributed to hospitals and institutions across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Guam between February 2017 to February 2018.
As per the FDA, those who administer the Naloxone drug should check it for any particulate matter or discoloration before injecting it to a person. Adverse reactions may include local irritation, allergic reactions, phlebitis, end-organ granuloma, tissue ischemia, pulmonary emboli, pulmonary dysfunction, pulmonary infarction, and toxicity.
