NEW YORK, NY., Hospira, Inc., a Pfizer company, is voluntarily recalling one lot of Vancomycin Hydrochloride Injection, USP, 1.5 g/vial Single Dose Fliptop Vial, lot 33045BA, to the user level due to two visible glass particulates observed in a single vial.

If administered intravenously, patients may experience adverse events such as local irritation or swelling, vasculitis/ phlebitis, antigenic or allergic reactions, and microvascular obstruction, including pulmonary embolism.

If administered orally or via a nasogastric tube, there may be the potential for gastrointestinal trauma.

The risk is reduced by the possibility of detection, as the label contains a statement directing the healthcare professional to visually inspect the product for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration.

To date, Pfizer has not received reports of any adverse events related to this recall.
