Microbial Contamination Leads to Dr. Reddy's Recall
Five lots of a Dr Reddy’s manufactured gastric drug have been recalled due to microbial contamination.

The voluntary recall was announced last week by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which said “a lot of raw material used in the manufacture of Ranitidine was positive for Pseudomonas sp."

The contaminated Ranitidine Hydrochloride Tablets – an over-the-counter drug used in gastric problems -  were manufactured at the Dr Reddy's facility in Bridgewater, New Jersey, US for distributors Wal-Mart, Supervalu and Walgreen.

Outsourcing-Pharma.com contacted India-based Dr. Reddy’s for further information but did not receive a response at the time of going to press.
