Actavis Totowa Issues Recall for All Products Made at NJ Plant

Comments Off

Late last week generic drug maker, Actavis Totowa, announced
a voluntary recall of all medications produced at their Little Falls, New
Jersey facility. The recall was issued after an FDA inspection revealed that
operations at the facility were not up to par. Actavis Totowa has recently been
under fire over the recent recall of the popular heart medication Digitek, and
allegations of inadequate quality control that allowed some of the pills to be
produced at double their normal thickness and therefore contain double the
appropriate amount of the active ingredient.

According to Actavis Totowa the recall of the products made
at the Little Falls facility was not prompted by concerns over the problems
with the medication but rather a precautionary measure. All of the recalled
products are prescription medications. Patients with these medications are
encouraged to continue take them as prescribed. If patients wish to obtain
replacement medication they should contact their physician.
