PhotoPhillips Company of Sun City, Ariz., is recalling all lots of Tetrastem, Diabecline, Tetracycline-ABC, VenomX, Acneen, StaphWash, StringMed, NoPain and LidoMed.

Manufacturing practices that are not in adequate control represent the possibility of risk being introduced into the manufacturing process in decreased quality and consistency of the product.

No adverse events have been reported to date.

The topical antibiotic products are intended for treatment of minor cuts, scrapes and burns; or as skin cleansers or hair-growth promoters.

The recalled products are distributed in 5 mL dropper bottles for topical application. The expiration date is printed on the label on the bottle. The products were distributed nationwide as wholesale products.
