Bryant Ranch Prepack Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Spironolactone 25 mg and 50 mg Tablets Due to Mislabeling with the Incorrect Strength

Audience: Consumer, Patient, Health Professional, Pharmacy

March 9, 2021 -- Bryant Ranch Prepack is voluntarily recalling 4 lots of Spironolactone tablets to the consumer level. The products have been found to be mislabeled, displaying the incorrect strength. Prepackaged bottles labeled spironolactone 50 mg may contain spironolactone 25 mg tablets and prepackaged bottles of spironolactone 25 mg may contain Spironolactone 50 mg tablets.

A patient who consumes spironolactone 25 mg instead of the prescribed spironolactone 50 mg may experience an elevation in blood pressure or increased swelling caused by excess fluid (edema) if taking the product chronically. It is possible that patients could experience a decrease in potassium if taking half of the expected dose which could lead to Hypokalemia, a condition associated with cardiac arrhythmias. Furthermore, patients who consume spironolactone 50 mg instead of the prescribed spironolactone 25 mg could experience an increase in potassium which could be life-threatening. Patients with renal insufficiency or those taking concomitant renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors would be at increased risk. As of 3/9/2021 Bryant Ranch Prepack has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

Spironolactone is indicated as a diuretic in the treatment of high blood pressure, heart failure, hypokalemia, and edema and is repackaged in 30, 60 and 90-count bottles.
