Roche Recalls Valium in Australia After Tampering

June 9, 2017

Blister packs of Valium made by Roche were recalled in Australia after tampering was uncovered at a distribution center in New South Wales.

Australia’s Therapeutics Goods Administration issued a recall for the 5-mg Valium blister packs after Roche discovered nine sheets had been substituted with those of other drugs, including Apotex’s paracetamol codeine tablets, rosuvastatin tablets and pantoprazole tablets, as well as prochlorperazine maleate tablets from Sanofi.

A Roche distribution partner, Symbion Contract Logistics, said it dismissed a worker at its Sydney-based facility that handles distribution of the products.
