Potential for these lots to contain vials with high and low fill weights for the lyophilized product.
Please be advised that Hospira, Inc., a Pfizer company ("Hospira") has issued a voluntary recall of Vancomycin 750 mg and 1 gm vials.
According to the manufacturer, this recall has been initiated due to the potential for these lots to contain vials with high or low fill weights for the lyophilized product.
Pfizer completed a Health Hazard Assessment which concluded that the use of the impacted product has a reasonable probability of being administered to the patient at a sub-therapeutic or more potent dosage that may result in lack of efficacy, antibiotic resistance or severe adverse events such as ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity. The overall potential risk for patients arising from this quality issue is considered to be high.
