Efforts by Wockhardt to fix violations at drug plant in Wrexham, Wales are inadequate according to the US FDA which detailed its concerns in a warning letter this week.

The warning letter​, dated November 16, discusses the Indian drug firm’s response to an inspection last October when agency staff detected a number of violations of current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) at the facility.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Wockhardt’s response to the inspection – which it received late last year - was ‘inadequate’ and advised it to hire a consultant to help it bring the facility up to code.

Wockhardt acquired the facility in 2003​ when it bought CP Pharmaceuticals.

Just last week the firm said it planned to build a sterile manufacturing and drug testing facility at its site in a $12.4m that will create 50 jobs

The firm did not respond to a request for comment.
