FDA alerts customers to voluntary recall of compounded drugs due to sterility issues by Drug Depot, LLC, dba APS Pharmacy

FDA is alerting patients, health care professionals, veterinarians, and animal owners/caretakers about a voluntary recall by Drug Depot, LLC, doing business as APS Pharmacy, of certain unexpired compounded drugs due to a lack of sterility assurance. Administration of a non-sterile drug intended to be sterile may result in serious and potentially life-threatening infections.

APS Pharmacy, located in Palm Harbor, Florida, which compounds drugs intended for human use and drugs intended for animal (veterinary) use, initiated the voluntary nationwide recall via a recall letter dated March 15, 2022. The company has sent recall letters to all patients and animal owners who received the recalled drugs, and they are contacting all customers via telephone calls and emails as part of their recall strategy.

The recalled drugs include “gonadorelin acetate,” “testosterone cypionate in grapeseed oil,” “testosterone cypionate/anastrozole in grapeseed oil,” “testosterone cypionate/DHEA in grapeseed oil,” and “testosterone cypionate/propionate in sesame seed oil” for human use, and “cyclosporin” and “tacrolimus” for animal ophthalmic use. These products were compounded between December 21, 2021, and March 7, 2022. The recalled drugs, lot numbers, and do-not-use beyond date - the date when the compounded drug should no longer be used - are listed here.

  • Thursday, the FDA announced the availability of a draft guidance on FDA’s policy regarding products labeled as dietary supplements that contain N-acetyl-L-cysteine. The draft guidance, when finalized, will explain the agency’s intent to exercise enforcement discretion with respect to the sale and distribution of certain NAC-containing products that are labeled as dietary supplements. This enforcement discretion policy would apply to products that would be lawfully marketed dietary supplements if NAC were not excluded from the definition of “dietary supplement” and are not otherwise in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).

On April 20, 2022, in federal court in Central Islip, Gregory Settino, a resident of Bethpage, New York, was sentenced by United States District Judge Joanna Seybert to a year and a day’s imprisonment for theft of approximately $750,000 worth of medical products. The Court also ordered Settino to pay restitution of $847,093.

Breon Peace, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, and Ronne G. Malham, Acting Special Agent-in-Charge, Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations, New York Field Office (FDA-OCI), announced the sentence.

“Today’s sentence is the finish line of Gregory Settino’s criminal conduct. He stole thousands of bottles of drugs, ignored safe handling practices, and allowed them to be given to horses at New York racetracks without regard for the health of the animals – only focusing on his own personal gain,” stated United States Attorney Peace. “Those who jeopardize drug safety and risk the health of others will be held accountable and face serious consequences.”
