Cancer Drugs Recalled for Embedded Glass Particles in Vials
The drugs recalled are carboplatin, cytarabine, paclitaxel, methotrexate and were distributed nationwide to wholesalers and direct customers.
The FDA said there may be potential for the drugs to come into contact with the embedded particles and the particles may become dislodged into the solutions.
Injury could result if the solution were injected into a patient, the FDA said. Signs and symptoms might include bleeding, bruising, inflammation, itching, rash, chest pain and respiratory symptoms.
