On June 29, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that Bryant Ranch Prepack Inc. had issued a recall concerning its Morphine Sulfate 60 mg Extended-Release tablets and Morphine Sulfate 30 mg Extended-Release tablets. The FDA’s warning announcement states that the affected 30 mg tablet packages have an expiration date of 11/30/2023, and a lot number 179642. The affected 60 mg bottles have a lot number 179643 and an expiration date of 08/31/2023. The two recalled products came in 100-count tablet bottles.
The packaging error is very serious and puts patients at significant risk of harm. The FDA noted that the company issued the recall after it was discovered that some of the packages were incorrectly labeled. The 60 mg tablet bottles were labeled as 30 mg tablets. The FDA’s recall announcement also states that the packaging error puts those who are taking the pills in grave danger because patients prescribed the 30 mg dose who errantly receive the 60 mg dose might be at risk for accidental overdose and death.
The FDA’s notice clarifies that the Morphine Sulfate 60 mg Extended-Release tablets can be recognized as round, light-orange, coated tablets with the letter “RD” and the numbers “72” printed on one side of the tablet. The Morphine Sulfate 30 mg Extended-Release tablets are identified as round, purple, coated tablets with a debossed with the letters “RD” and numbers “71” on one side.
The FDA cautions all consumers with the recalled medication to cease using the tablets and immediately contact their prescribing physician for alternative medications. Customers should also contact Bryant Ranch Prepack Inc. through its website for a refund and other instructions. Those who are experiencing problems with the recalled tablets must contact their healthcare provider immediately.
