Nationwide recall issued for all PharmaTech liquid drugs

Three drug distributors on Thursday issued nationwide recalls for all liquid drugs manufactured by PharmaTech, an Athens, Ga.-based drugmaker.

Leader Brand, Major Pharmaceuticals and Rugby Laboratories distributed the medications to wholesale and retail facilities nationwide, including hospitals and pharmacies.

The recall, which distributors issued as a precautionary measure, follows a separate recall Rugby initiated last week after the FDA received two reports of Burkholderia cepacia infections in patients that may be linked to liquid stool softeners manufactured by PharmaTech.

The three distributors are informing customers of the recall and arranging for the return of all affected medications.
