Suggested Veterinary Products

Norbrook Laboratories is recalling 34 lots of veterinary injectable drug products over concerns related to sterility assurance.

The U.K.-based company says products tested, released, and distributed within the U.S. were manufactured on an aseptic line, which did not pass process simulation tests. The recall was made as a precautionary measure, as according to Norbrook, no batches of product have been identified to contain microorganisms.
