Oregon Compounding Centers, Inc., dba Creative Compounds, has recalled certain unexpired human and veterinary sterile products because of a lack of sterility assurance. The recall was issued after an FDA inspection that identified an issue with sterility assurance.

Neither the company nor the FDA have not received any reports of illness to date. However, “sterility” means free from dangerous pathogens. If a medication intended to be sterile is contaminated with a dangerous pathogen, a patient could get seriously ill and die.

“We are representing clients sickened by injections compounded by two other companies. In these cases our clients developed life-threatening infections from fungus and Staph bacteria. We hope the Creative Compounds products recalled this week are quickly pulled out of the market and do not cause illness.”

The recalled products were made from July 1, 2014 through September 22, 2014, and distributed to health care facilities, physicians, and patients in Oregon and Washington.

Please note that the recall does not pertain to any non-sterile compounded medications prepared by the company, Oregon Compounding Centers, Inc., dba Creative Compounds.

You should immediately contact your doctor if you think you have an infection around the injection site or if you have any other problems that may be related to the products above. You may need to contact your doctor to find out if any of the recalled products were administered to you.  If you have been sickened, you can click here now to contact our lawyers for a free consultation.
