The products are prescription medications that were labeled and distributed by Dr. Reddy’s for institutional use only.

The prescription medications were distributed by third party wholesalers to retail pharmacies and could have been dispensed to consumers.

The packaging of the products is not child resistant and can pose a risk of poisoning if the contents are swallowed by young children.

No incidents or injuries have been reported.

This recall involves blister packages of prescription medications. The name and strength of the medication, “For Institutional Use only,” “Rx Only,” lot number and expiration date are printed on the outside of the package as well as on the individual blister units.

The recalled products, manufactured in India, were sold to wholesalers by Dr. Reddy's beginning in 2018.

Ultimately, they could have been sold to consumers at retail pharmacies in the U.S. at varying prices based on quantities prescribed, health insurance terms and other factors.
