The company is asking all patients and providers to discontinue the use of these products, quarantine any unused product until further directions for return are available, and to contact Isomeric to discuss the return of unused sterile products.
If you or your provider are a customer of Isomeric, the company should be contacting you via mail, phone, or email. However, if you have not been contacted, you may call the company at 844-470-2467 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Isomeric Pharmacy Solutions is a registered 503B Pharmacy (outsourcing facility) located in Salt Lake City, UT. With their 503B registration, they are permitted to distribute their products nationwide. This recall comes at the request of the FDA after an inspection of the facility in March 2017 revealed sterility concerns. To this date, Isomeric has not received any reports of adverse events following the use of these recalled products.
As always, Pirl will continue to watch this recall and future related events.
