FDA and Ortho Biotech Products alerted healthcare providers and consumers about the existence of three lots of counterfeit product labeled as Procrit (Epoetin Alfa):
P007645 – 40,000 units/mL, Expiration 10-2004
P004677 – 40,000 units/mL, Expiration 02-2004
P004839 – 40,000 units/mL, Expiration 02-2004.
The counterfeit Procrit has been found to be contaminated with bacteria and therefore represents a significant potential hazard to consumers.
