If you use a popular over-the-counter ointment as a topical pain reliever, some news about the manufacturer’s voluntary product recall should be cause for concern. An August 31, 2021, article in the Miami Herald contains some important information about the move by Teligent Pharma, which found during its own testing that a batch of Lidocaine HCl Topical Solution contained excessively high levels of its main ingredient. The dosage would be considered “super potent” and too strong for the patient, potentially leading to life-threatening consequences.
The news article includes information on the pharmaceutical company’s instructions related to the recall, but it is also important as a way of understanding how manufacturing defects work. A Miami products liability attorney can explain the details, and an overview is informative.
