Date:7/14/2008

COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Roxane Laboratories, Inc. announced today that it is conducting a nationwide voluntary recall of two manufacturing lots of Sodium Polystyrene Sulfonate Suspension, USP, 15 g/60 mL Unit dose bottles (NDC 0054-0165-51; Lot 856396A Exp April 2010, and Lot 856693A Exp May 2010).

Roxane Laboratories' number one priority is for the safety of patients who use our products. A sample from product lot 856396A tested positive for a strain of yeast, which could potentially affect immunocompromised patients. Roxane Laboratories believes that this may be attributed to yeast contamination in one lot of high-density polyethylene bottles received from a supplier. There are various manifestations of yeast infections. The risk of developing a yeast infection depends on how immunocompromised the patient is. Additionally, there are a range of symptoms in a yeast infection from thrush, skin rash, and blood infections (sepsis). If patients develop an infection they should consult their physician. Due to the potential risks that could occur in immunocompromised patients, Roxane Laboratories is voluntarily recalling lot 856396A. Although there have been no testing failures associated with lot 856693A, this additional lot is also being included in the recall as a precautionary measure because the same lot of bottles was used in both finished product lots. All other product parameters were within specification and product efficacy is not impacted. There have been no complaints or adverse events reported for the affected lots. This recall is limited to the two lot numbers listed. No other Roxane Laboratories, Inc. products or lots are impacted by this recall. '/>"/>
