B. Braun Voluntarily Recalls Seven Lots of Heparin Manufactured in 2008 Due to Supplier-Initiated Recall of Heparin Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API)
Date:10/27/2010

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- B. Braun Medical Inc. (B. Braun) was recently notified by its supplier, Scientific Protein Laboratories LLC (SPL), of a nationwide recall of a lot of Heparin Sodium USP Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) sold to B. Braun because additional testing of retained crude heparin samples used by SPL to manufacture this single API lot indicated a trace amount of oversulfated chondroitin sulfate (OSCS) contaminant. As a result, B. Braun is initiating a voluntary recall of seven lots of heparin injection products to the healthcare provider level. These lots were manufactured in 2008 and will be expiring on October 31, 2010 and November 30, 2010.
