Date:11/5/2010

SHIRLEY, N.Y., Nov. 5, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- American Regent is conducting a nationwide voluntary recall of:

Magnesium Sulfate Injection, USP 50% (25 grams/50mL) 50 mL Single Dose Vial NDC # 0517-2650-25, Lot # 0491, Exp. Date: 8/2012

PLEASE NOTE: This recall, initiated on October 29, 2010 to the User Level, is for Lot # 0491 Only.  No other lots of Magnesium Sulfate Injection, USP are subject of this recall.

This voluntary recall was initiated because some vials of this lot were observed to be slightly discolored and upon standing have the appearance of sediment on the bottom of the vials.  American Regent is undertaking this recall in consideration of the potential for safety issues if this lot of product is administered to patients.

The product was distributed to wholesalers and distributors nationwide.

"Patient safety is our primary concern, and we are committed to taking the necessary steps to protect patients from any potential safety risks," said Mary Jane Helenek, President and CEO of American Regent.

While American Regent continues to investigate this issue, the company is taking precautionary action and initiated this voluntary recall.  American Regent has informed the FDA of its actions and is maintaining ongoing discussions with the agency.

As is standard practice, and as stated in the Magnesium Sulfate Injection, USP Product Package Insert, "Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit."
