Statement From Eli Lilly and Company Regarding Stolen Company Products From Enfield, Connecticut Distribution Operations
Date:3/17/2010

INDIANAPOLIS, March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today issued a statement and details regarding the stolen company products from its distribution operations in Enfield, Connecticut on Sunday, March 14.  

Lilly is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Office of Criminal Investigations (FDA), and other law enforcement officials, to recover cases of select lots of pharmaceutical products that were stolen from one of Lilly's United States distribution centers located in Enfield, Connecticut, on Sunday, March 14, 2010.  A list of products stolen from the facility can be found at the bottom of this press release.

"Since early Sunday morning, Lilly has taken quick and appropriate actions to ensure the safety of our medicines," said Dr. Fionnuala M. Walsh, Lilly's senior vice president of global quality.  "The U.S. pharmaceutical distribution system is tightly controlled and monitored, making it extremely difficult for stolen product to make it to patients through legitimate channels. However, we will continue to work closely with local and federal law enforcement authorities, the FDA, and our distribution partners to maintain the integrity of our drug supply chain."

Product from the affected lots which had been delivered from Lilly to retailers, wholesalers or institutions prior to March 14 was approved for its intended use and is not affected by this event.  Product containing these lot numbers has been distributed by Lilly within the United States, Puerto Rico and its territories.

These medicines require a prescription for purchase.  Consumers should purchase Lilly products only from well-established and reputable retailers.  Lilly recommends that consumers always inspect the product and label for signs of tampering before opening.  

Lilly is advising practitioners, retailers and consumers to check all pharmaceutical products for signs of tampering or damage prior to purchase and/or use.  Pharmacists and other health care professionals should not use the product if it has been removed from the sealed bottle or container, if the induction seal has been compromised, or in the case of glass vials, if the flip cap appears to have been disturbed in any way.  

To assist the FDA and the law enforcement agencies in their investigation, Lilly stopped distributing product with the affected lot numbers on Monday, March 15, 2010.

Lilly is asking for the public's help in reporting any information regarding the stolen products to FDA's Office of Criminal Investigations (OCI) by calling (800) 551-3989 or by visiting the OCI website www.fda.gov/OCI.

For medical or other related inquiries about this matter, contact Lilly at 1-800-LILLYRX (1-800-545-5979).
