The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) today issued class 2 medicines recall for four batches of Sayana Press 104mg/0.65ml suspension for injection.

Pfizer, the sole supplier of the prescription-only medicine, is recalling the product from pharmacies, as an issue related to the sealing process for some units of Sayana Press for subcutaneous (SC) injection potentially impacting these batches.

Pharmacists are directed to quarantine all remaining stocks immediately and return it to suppliers using the approved process.
