Medication Drug Recalls

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes sure a drug is rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness before becoming available to the public. Once in the market, the FDA, along with the makers of the drug, continue to monitor it for any unforeseen problems. Should an issue develop, or the safety of a medication comes into question, a recall may be initiated.

Some common reasons drugs are recalled:

  • Health Hazard

  • Mislabeled or Packaged poorly

  • Potentially contaminated

  • Poorly manufactured

In the case of a drug recall, your Stanford Healthcare Advantage plan will post them on this page for you to view and discuss with your Prescribing Physician.
