Mislabeled fentanyl patches recalled

Alvogen, a pharmaceutical company based in New Jersey, is recalling two lots of its transdermal fentanyl patches due to faulty product labeling.

The affected lots of Fentanyl Transdermal System 12 mcg/h transdermal patches were distributed to pharmacies.

Alvogen said a small number of cartons labeled as containing 12 mcg/h patches actually contain 50 mcg/h patches, which are individually labeled as having the 50 mcg/h dose.

3M Drug Delivery Systems manufacturers the product, which helps manage pain in opioid-tolerant patients.
