Supply and Distribution Issues Figured Prominently in 2007 Drug Recalls

This article was originally published in The Gold Sheet

Executive Summary

SUPPLY AND DISTRIBUTION VULNERABILITIES were highlighted in last year’s recalls. Nearly half stemmed from a flummoxed repacker and a truck chilled by a Valentine’s Day Blizzard. Class I recall numbers were swollen by erectile dysfunction APIs in dietary supplements. Class II recalls featured a close brush with DEG. Data integrity concerns lurked behind a variety of recalls. OTC drugs accounted for a greater share of recalls in 2007, and included a nearly 10-million-bottle recall of a potentially germ-spreading mouthwash. Meanwhile, cold chain concerns led to several vaccine recalls [see tabulation of drug recalls chart].
