Blood Pressure Medication Recalled After Dangerous Product Label Error

August 30th, 2018 Defective Products
Product Recall Label

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a common blood-pressure medication has been recalled after a potentially harmful error on the product label. A detailed article on the recall appears here.

The manufacturer—Accord Healthcare Inc.— voluntarily recalled one lot of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP 12.5 mg because some bottles may contain a different product. An investigation has revealed only one lot—Lot# PW05264—may potentially be affected.

Doctors frequently prescribe Hydrochlorothiazide to treat high blood pressure. Bottles from the lot in question may contain Spironolactone Tablets USP 25 mg—a drug prescribed for cirrhosis of the liver, congestive heart failure, and other conditions. Confusing these medications could lead to potentially harmful effects.

Identification of Hydrochlorothiazide

Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP 12.5 mg manufactured by Accord Healthcare Inc. appear as peach or pale orange in color. The tablets feature the letter “H” on one side and the numeral “1” on the other. The company has released a visual guide to help identify the product.

What to Do

Currently, Accord Healthcare Inc. states there are no reports of adverse incidents stemming from the recall. As a precaution, the FDA recommends people who possess Hydrochlorothiazide tablets manufactured by Accord that do not match the correct description above contact their doctor or pharmacist.

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed. My attorney, was engaged in my journey, understood my pain and immediately addressed my worries with a solution. My attorney truly has treated my like an individual case, caring about my needs and why I was having to file. I had a team of excellent staff that provided a professional experience with a wonderful attitude and work ethic that has made a life changing event bearable. Brooke whom assisted my attorney is amazing and personable very attentive. The little time I had to spend in the office was great. I couldn’t recommend the Caddell Reynolds team enough- the team starts at the door with the incredible Yolanda to greet you when you walk in!
