Eli Lilly’ Glucagon Emergency Kit for Low Blood Sugar Recalled Due to Risk of Death
According to an online news report on miamiherald.com, an emergency blood sugar kit is being recalled due to reports of seizures and the risk of death. The report states that Eli Lilly has recalled one of its emergency kits for people with diabetes suffering from severe hypoglycemia. The recalled kits have a “loss of potency” issue and could fail a patient who needs it.
Eli Lilly’ Glucagon Emergency Kit for Low Blood Sugar, with an expiration date of April 2022, and a lot No. expressed on the label as “04 2022.” have been recalled. The expiration date and the lot number are found on the reverse side of the packaging and along with the vial.
The recall notice from Eli Lilly and the FDA reports that the company received a complaint that “the vial of Glucagon was not in powder form, but was in liquid form. Using the liquid form could fail to treat severe low blood sugar because of a loss of potency, which could lead to neurological damage, seizures, and death if not treated promptly.
