One further batch of Theramex AlfaD (alfacalcidol) 0.25 mcg capsules is being recalled, due to a barcode error.

the affected batch is

  • Batch Number: A04279A
  • Expiry Date: 31 Jan 2022
  • Pack Size: 30
  • First Distributed: 26 Mar 2020

As before, the error will be apparent at the decommissioning stage in dispensaries using the FMD.  Although there is no risk to product quality, any remaining stock should be quarantined and returned. DDA advice remains to not invest in FMD scanning equipment until funding negotiations are resolved.
