The Medicines and Health products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a class two medicines recall for Abstral 200 microgram sublingual tablets.

Batch Number Expiry Date Pack Size  First Distributed
608777302 31 July 2021 30 Tablets 24 December 2019

Kyowa Kirin Limited is recalling the tablets batch as a precautionary measure, due to the reports of double tablets in a single blister pocket.

This was identified during reference sample inspection and there is a potential low risk of accidental double dosage.

The pharmacists have been adviced to stop supplying the batch immediately and quarantine all remaining stock and return it to their supplier.
