Overfilled Pain Injection Recalled

Hospira Inc. has issued a recall for one lot of a pain injection after receiving reports that the product contains more medication than what is labeled.

Hydromorphone Hydrochloride Injection 1 MG/ML is being recalled because an overdose may have life-threatening consequences if it is overdosed, according to a Food and Drug Administration press release. Side effects include respiratory depression (slowed breathing of suspension of breathing), low blood pressure, and reduced heart rate including circulatory collapse.

The affected lot was distributed from September through October 2011. It was distributed to wholesalers and a limited number of hospitals across the nation.
