HFM News | Medical Alerts

Register with PNS Today!

When a recall or withdrawal is announced, each manufacturer and supplier has their own internal process for notifying pharmacies, clinicians, and patients. However, for patients with bleeding disorders, there is another resource that will alert you directly in the event of a product recall or withdrawal: the Patient Notification System (PNS). HFA believes the PNS is a valuable resource for patients and families with bleeding disorders. | 07.8.2016

VIA HFA: Clarification of Bayer and CSL Behring Recalls

Upon clarification by the manufacturers of Kogenate FS (Bayer) and Helixate FS (CSL Behring), it has come to HFA's attention that ALL of the lot numbers listed below are included in the extension recalls issued on August 10, 2016 and the original recall notice of July 25, 2016.   | 08.12.2016

Voluntary Recall Extension for Additional Lots of Helixate FS

Medical Advisory #421 - Voluntary Recall Extension for Additional Lots of Helixate FS CSL Behring has announced an extension to a voluntary recall of two lots of Helixate FS with vial adapter that was sent to the community in NHF Medical Advisory #420.  There was an analysis conducted on additional lots manufactured before November 2015. As a result additional lots are being voluntarily recalled. Declining potency issues were the problem with these lots after routine stability testing. Two lots that fell below the acceptable range were: Helixate FS 2000 IU Lot # 270PWG6 Expiry Date: 05/08/2017 Helixate FS 1000 IU Lot # 270NV9G Expiry Date: 09/23/2016 Additional lots may eventually fall below the pre-specified acceptable range before shelf life expiration and are subject to recall. These lots are listed on the following page of this document.  | 08.11.2016
