Sandoz Voluntarily Recalls All Methotrexate Lots


Sandoz Inc. has voluntarily recalled all lots of Methotrexate Injection, after small glass flakes were found in four lots.

The glass flakes were found by Sandoz quality control, and are a result of delamination of the glass that is used to manufacture the vials, according to a statement released by Sandoz.

The manufacturer noted that lodging of the particles could lead to serious adverse events that could result in disability or death.

More information, including lot numbers, label type, and expiration date can be found on the Sandoz and Food and Drug Administration websites.

Patients should discontinue use of the product immediately.
