The reason for the recall is current CGMP deviations

Drug firm Lupin’s US arm, Lupin Pharmaceuticals, is recalling 12,888 bottles of Famotidine for oral suspension used in treatment of ulcers from the American market.

The reason for the recall is current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) deviations, United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) said in its latest Enforcement Report.

Lupin Pharmaceuticals is recalling 12,888 bottles of Famotidine for oral suspension USP, 40 mg/5 ml, 50 ml bottle, manufactured by Lupin at its Goa facility, it added.

The ongoing nation wide voluntary recall is a class III recall, the report said.

Famotidine for oral suspension is indicated in short—term treatment of active duodenal ulcer, active benign gastric ulcer and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

As per the USFDA, a class III recall is initiated in “a situation in which use of, or exposure to, a violative product is not likely to cause adverse health consequences.”
