Westminster Pharmaceuticals has announced a voluntary, nationwide recall of all lots of levothyroxine and liothyronine 15 mg, 30 mg, 60 mg, 90 mg, and 120 mg to the wholesale level. The recall is being undertaken as a precaution, as the products were made using active pharmaceutical ingredients that were sourced before FDA's Import Alert for Sichuan Friendly Pharmaceutical Co. During a 2017 inspection, Sichuan Friendly Pharmaceutical was found to have substandard Current Good Manufacturing Practices. Westminster has received no reports of adverse events related to this product thus far, and patients taking the recalled medicines should continue taking them until they have a replacement product.
