The United States: PharmaTech LLC issues voluntary nationwide recall due to potential risk of product contamination
PharmaTech, LLC of Davie, FL, is voluntarily recalling all liquid products from October 20, 2015 through July 15, 2016 as a precautionary measure due to a potential risk of product contamination with Burkholderia cepacia.

PharmaTech-LLC has not received any complaints to date of contamination in the products and the associated lot numbers.
