Coastal Meds LLC, which compounds drugs as an outsourcing facility, has voluntarily recalled all of its products marketed as sterile due to visible particles in some of the drug vials for injection, the Food and Drug Administration announced Friday. Health care providers should immediately quarantine and not administer any Coastal Meds sterile drug products intended for injection, FDA said. The agency encourages health care professionals and patients to report any adverse reactions or quality problems to the MedWatch program.
