MHRA issues precautionary recall of medicines manufactured by Wockhardt Ltd

The MHRA have recalled 16 different prescription only medications made by Wockhardt Ltd. Including two medications commonly used by people with hyperthyroidism, Atenolol and Propylthiouracil (PTU).

The MHRA believe that there is no patient safety risk but there is a risk of cross-contamination because of poor cleaning practices, defects in building fabric and the ventilation systems at the site.

Perhaps they make my 25mcg thyroxine tablets in a nice clean and well ventilated part of the factory and that's why they haven't recalled them. Yeh right!

What an utter disgrace this whole farcical situation is.
