San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for drugs including Propofol.

As the FDA announced on April 18, seven lots of Propofol Injectable Emulsion, 1%, 200 mg/20 mL (10 mg/mL) by Hospira due to a glass defect as during a sample inspection the glass vial contained visible embedded metal particulate.

If particulate matter is injected, it may cause local inflammation, phlebitis, and/or low level allergic response through mechanical disruption of tissue or immune response to the particulate. It may also lead to granulomatous formation. In extremely rare cases, this may put patients at risk from MRI as particulate, if in the lung, could dislodge and be pulled through tissue.

The affected lots are: 29-614-DJ, 29-615-DJ, 29-616-DJ, 29-617-DJ, 29-628-DJ, 29-629-DJ, 29-630-DJ, and their distribution dates were from August 2013 to December 2013.
