Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution unit-dose vials (Dey LP brand)
Audience: Pharmacists and pharmacy organizations
[Posted 09/10/2009] FDA notified pharmacists that two complete Lots (9FE2 and 9G01) containing 35,760 cartons of Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution, 0.083%, unit-dose vials was stolen in Texas on or about August 6, 2009. These two Lot numbers were not available commercially prior to the theft. All of the product cartons in these two Lots were stolen. Therefore, no vial or carton of either Lot is part of the legitimate pharmaceutical supply chain.
Pharmacies are encouraged to verify pedigree documentation for all purchases of Dey labeled Albuterol Sulfate. Products with either of these two Lots numbers should not be sold, distributed or dispensed. If you receive any suspicious or unsolicited offers for the Albuterol in question, please contact the FDA Office of Criminal Investigations by calling 1-800-551-3989.
