The Medicines and Health products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a drug recall for Itraconazole 10mg/ml oral solution of Thame Laboratories.

The drug manufacturer, Thame Laboratories, has recalled Itraconazole batches due to an issue with the container closure (child-resistant cap).

The marketing authorisation holder has received a number of complaints regarding the child-resistant caps which were difficult to open, and their investigation has identified an issue with the bottle capping process during the manufacture of the product.
