The National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control has notified the public, particularly healthcare providers, to one batch of counterfeit Meronem 1g Injection being purchased in the country.
The notification of this product is contained in a public alert No. 036/2023, signed by the Director-General of the agency, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, today, in Abuja.
Adeyeye said that the agency was equally notified about the injection by the Marketing Authorisation Holder Pfizer, who reported the incident, as received through a patient notification platform.
The NAFDAC boss said Pfizer reported that the vial content did not dissolve when reconstituted for use and that further visual inspection of the pack was observed.
