China recalls improperly labelled injections

world Updated: Aug 27, 2010 12:37 IST

China has recalled all injections produced by a pharmaceutical company after it found they were "improperly labelled", authorities said.

Though no case of adverse reactions have been reported, the State Food and Drug Administration asked the Harbin Yida Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. in Heilongjiang province to recall all injections produced since the beginning of 2009, Xinhua reported on Thursday.

The company was found to have "improperly labeled its arsenious acid and sodium chloride injections", a statement from the drug watchdog said, adding that the company failed to implement safe production regulations and responsibilities.

The drug watchdog also urged drug administrative agencies nationwide to conduct strict supervision and routine checks of drug companies.
