Opioid Overdose Antidote Naloxone Recalled Due to Particulate Matter

There have not been reports of any adverse events as a result of using the Naloxone cartridge syringe, the release said.

A drug used to reverse opioid overdoses may not be available for a while locally, due to a nationwide, voluntary recall issued by its manufacturer, Hospira Inc.

Users can inspect the Naloxone before it is administered to a person by looking for particulate matter near the syringe and looking for discoloration before it is administered. The reason? Those batches of naloxone may be contaminated with "embedded and loose particulate matter" on the syringe plunger that could cause harmful side effects.

Below are the two lots that have been recalled. Adverse reactions may include local irritation, allergic reactions, phlebitis, end-organ granuloma, tissue ischemia, pulmonary emboli, pulmonary dysfunction, pulmonary infarction, and toxicity. "Hospira, Inc., has notified wholesalers/distributors/hospitals to arrange for return of any recalled product".
