The MHRA has issued medicines recall alert for Easyhaler Salbutamol Sulfate 100 and 200 micrograms per actuation inhalation powder.

The manufacturer Orion Pharma are recalling specific batches as a precautionary measure due to an issue related to moulding defects in the bulk chambers where the inhalation powder is stored.

“There is a risk that the defect possibly presents as a hole in the bulk chamber resulting in the minor loss of inhalation powder. The manufacturer has confirmed that the devices will continue to function correctly with no impact on patient safety,” MHRA said in the alert.
