Pan Pharmaceuticals Limited recall update

Media release

29 April 2003

7pm

The Therapeutic Goods Administration has sought from all potential suppliers/sponsors of products manufactured by Pan Pharmaceuticals Ltd advice as to whether any of their products should be subject to a TGA recall. The TGA has sought a response by close of business Wednesday 30 April and we expect to be able publish this data in a list on the TGA website tomorrow evening. It is also expected that this list will also appear in newspapers on Thursday.

In the interim, a list of companies which DO NOT use Pan Pharmaceuticals Limited as a manufacturer is available on the TGA website and is being updated regularly.

Further information is also available on the TGA website on www.tga.gov.au.

The number for the Pan Pharmaceuticals Limited Recall freecall information line is 1800 220 007. Due to the high demand the number of staff answering calls has been drastically increased and the information line extended to a 24-hour service. However, callers may still experience delays - to 4pm today the TGA had received 100,000 calls - and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
