Compounding Pharmacy to Remain Shut for Next Two Weeks

Compounding Pharmacy to Remain Shut for Next Two Weeks

A recent report has revealed that a compounding pharmacy based in Tinton Falls would be seen closed for another two weeks.

Mold had been reported in a total of five bags of magnesium sulfate products. And the state Board of Pharmacy made the announcement today that the closure would be seen after all the drugs have been recalled by the pharmacy.

Med Prep Consulting Inc. agreed over extension of its voluntary approval order with the state. The same has stopped all the operations at the business, twenty years old, and was expected to expire today.

It is being said that Med Prep would open after April 5. Until then, state authorities would be continuing to investigate the contamination's main cause. The Division of Consumer Affairs, supervisory body for the Board of Pharmacy, is investigating the same along with federal Food and Drug Administration, the state Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Mary O'Dowd, New Jersey health commissioner, told that no illnesses were reported related to the recall.

"This agreement between the Board of Pharmacy and Med Prep ensures the company will remain closed, while we continue to investigate the root cause of the contamination last week", said Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa.
