The FDA posted information listed below about the recall.
Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Ltd. (NYSE AMEX: CPD), a generic pharmaceutical company, announced that all tablets of Caraco brand Digoxin, USP, 0.125 mg, and Digoxin, USP, 0.25 mg, distributed prior to March 31, 2009, which are not expired and are within the expiration date of September, 2011, are being voluntarily recalled to the consumer level. The tablets are being recalled because they may differ in size and therefore could have more or less of the active ingredient, digoxin. The recalled tablets were manufactured by Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Ltd. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration. Digoxin is a drug product used to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. It has a narrow therapeutic index and the existence of higher than labeled dose may pose a risk of digoxin toxicity in patients with renal failure. Digoxin toxicity can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, cardiac instability, and bradycardia. Death can also result from excessive digoxin intake. A lower than labeled dose may pose a risk of lack of efficacy potentially resulting in cardiac instability. The recalled lots of Digoxin are listed below.
Caraco Digoxin 0.125 mg is a scored round biconvex yellow tablet imprinted with “437”
Caraco Digoxin 0.25 mg is a scored round biconvex white tablet imprinted with “441”
