Update: October 22, 2012

On October 22, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration posted two inaccurate lists on its website. These two lists were intended to show which customers had purchased which products from the New England Compounding Center since May 2012. However, the information on the lists was incorrect and the FDA has removed the lists from its website. NECC has recalled all products shipped in 2012 and is continuing its efforts to contact all of the customers who received products in 2012 as part of this product recall. Customers are encouraged to complete the recall forms that NECC has sent out to aid in the on-going joint efforts by the FDA and NECC to locate and to secure NECC products. Any customers with questions should contact 1-800-994-6322. In addition, NECC encourages patients to contact their healthcare providers directly if they have questions about medications they have received.
