FDA Cites API Maker for Data and Label Discrepancies

Feb. 27, 2017

The FDA issued Form 483s to two international API makers, citing recordkeeping failures and incomplete labeling.

The FDA also faulted Cosma for failing to keep chromatographic data earlier than 2011 and for its practice of destroying raw equipment calibration data.
