BETHESDA, MD 18 September 2012—Bedford Laboratories is recalling all of its 500-mg vials of leucovorin calcium liquid injection, the company announced today.
The recall, which the company said started on Friday, follows an earlier one in which crystalline leucovorin calcium had been found in vials from three lots.
Bedford said the new recall applies to lots 2017619, 2017621, 2038375, 2065418, 2067176, and 2067177 of Bedford-labeled leucovorin calcium injection and lot 2067178A of Nova Plus-labeled leucovorin sodium injection.
The vials entered the supply chain as early as December 2010, the company said.
Bedford said buyers of vials from the seven lots have been sent a notification by certified mail.
The vials were manufactured by Ben Venue Laboratories Inc., which in November 2011 announced a voluntary suspension of manufacturing activities at its Bedford, Ohio, facility. One of the lots now under recall entered the supply chain after that announcement.
