According to 23 ABC News on Tuesday, a fertility pharmacy is recalling medications that were shipped to patients in Indiana, and 39 other states. The recall involves the Village Fertility Pharmacy’s recall of the compounded medications for women who are undergoing in vitro fertilization.
Each medication is specifically formulated for each patient and then shipped directly to them. As many know, fertility medications are not cheap, and most insurance companies do not pay for them.
The recall includes the following medications:
• Progesterone Injection Cottonseed Oil 50 MG/ML
• Progesterone Injection Olive Oil 50 MG/ML, 100 MG/ML
• Progesterone Injection Sesame Oil 50 MG/ML, 100 MG/ML
• Progesterone Injection Ethyl Oleate 50 MG/ML, 100 MG/ML
• Hydroxy Progesterone Caproate 250 MG/ML
• Compounded Leuprolide Acetate 1MG/.2ML
The company issued the recall because of a reported tainted vile.
Village Fertility Pharmacy Spokesman Matt Ellis said the treatments were shipped to 39 states including Indiana, Illinois, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
