RECALL: Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray
MAY 31, 2018 -- Apotex Corp is recalling its Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray due to the potential for small glass particles.
The Fluticasone Propionate Nasal Spray 50 mcg per spray 120 Metered Sprays has been found to contain small glass particles. The glass particles could block the actuator and impact the functionality of the pump.
The issue was discovered through a customer complaint. There is a potential for patients to be exposed to the glass particles and mechanical irritation cannot be ruled out. Local trauma to the nasal mucosa might occur with use of the defective product. To date, Apotex Corp. has not received any reports of adverse events related to recall.
