A month after Hospira CEO F. Michael Ball acknowledged the company had more work to do to get its various manufacturing issues in hand, the company has recalled a product after hair was found in an injector.
The Lake Forest, IL-based company is recalling one lot of its parenteral nutritional product Aminosyn II 10%, sulfite-free, 500mL. It said a customer found an unknown foreign particle in contact with product in the injection port. Hospira confirmed that it was human hair. No adverse events have been reported, and the voluntary recall is precautionary. The company has yet to figure out the root cause of the problem.
