The Health Products Regulatory Authority has advised that four batches of the product GlucaGen HypoKit 1mg are being recalled.
Announcement is here www.hpra.ie
GlucaGen HypoKit is packaged with a syringe containing sterile water for injection which is used to prepare the medicine for use. The reason for the recall is that in a small number of units (0.006%) the syringe needle has become detached from the syringe. Units with a detached needle cannot be used to prepare the medicine for administration
