The affected products are used by hospitals and health care professionals at doctor's practices or clinics. None of the products are sold directly to patients at retail stores or to home care patients.
The products packaged in plastic infusion bags, plastic infusion devices, plastic syringes and glass vials were shipped directly to regional hospital pharmacies in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Delaware. Products packaged in plastic syringes only were distributed nationwide to doctor's practices and clinics, the FDA said.
All facilities that received the recalled Med Prep products have been notified and instructed to remove and return the product to the company.
