Naloxone maker recalls life-saving drug

Naloxone is used to combat opioid overdoses.

No instances of adverse events have been reported, according to the recall announcement.

A recall for naloxone was issued by the Food and Drug Administration over fear that products from the company Hospira Inc. contain potentially risky loose particles.

The risk is reduced by the possibility of detection, as the labeling contains a clear statement directing a visual inspection of the product for particulate matter and discoloration. The reason? Those batches of naloxone may be contaminated with "embedded and loose particulate matter" on the syringe plunger that could cause harmful side effects.
