JUN 20, 2019
RXQ Compounding, LLC is voluntarily recalling sterile human and animal products within expiry, including repackaged bevacizumab (Avastin).
The nationwide recall, issued on June 18, is due to the lack of sterility process assurance. While all lots of unexpired products produced in Athens, Ohio location are being recalled, RXQ products were distributed nationwide. The company has halted sterile production at their current location while they transition to a new facility.
