Voluntary Nationwide Recall of all Liquid Products Manufactured by Pharmatech LLC and Distributed by Leader Brand, Major Pharmaceuticals, and Rugby Laboratories Due to Possible Product Contamination
As a precautionary measure, the distribution firms Leader Brand, Major Pharmaceuticals, 
 and Rugby Laboratories have jointly issued a nationwide voluntary recall of all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC at its FDA-registered facility in Davie, Fla. due to possible product contamination.

The products subject to this recall were distributed nationwide to wholesale and retail facilities, including hospitals and pharmacies. Through recent communication with FDA, the distribution firm Rugby Laboratories learned of a potential issue with a product manufactured by PharmaTech LLC. The FDA informed Rugby Laboratories that it received several adverse event reports of B. cepacia infections in patients, which may be linked to PharmaTech LLC manufactured Diocto Syrup or Diocto Liquid (docusate sodium solutions). In response, Rugby Laboratories issued a voluntary recall on August 3, 2017, of the PharmaTech LLC manufactured Diocto Syrup and Diocto Liquid. As a precautionary measure based on additional information received from the FDA, the three distribution firms are recalling all lots within expiry of all liquid products manufactured by PharmaTech LLC.
