Drug Warning – Overdose Risk: Morphine Sulfate Lot Recalled

BETHESDA, MD, 10 June 2008 — A single lot of morphine sulfate has been recalled because some of the tablets may contain twice the labeled level of the product’s active ingredient, according to FDA.

Ethex Corp. voluntarily recalled lot number 91762 that had 60-mg extended release tablets of morphine sulfate. No other lots of the same or other dosage strengths are affected, FDA said.

Drugs in the lot were distributed from April 16-27. The company has received no reports of adverse reactions to drugs from the recalled lot.

Inquiries can be made to Ethex Customer Service at 1-800-321-1705, faxed to 314-646-3751, or sent via email to customer-service@ethex.com.
