Drugs From Kenyan Pharmaceutical Company Recalled Over Poor Quality

The Rwanda Food Drug Authority (RFDA) has recalled a Kenyan Pharmaceutical from its stores.

According to RFDA, four bulk batches of pink Fluconazole 200mg tablets imported into the country had a white discoloration.

“Reference is also made to the letter with ref. No UCL/PD/pp/2023/05/043 by Universal Corporation Ltd notifying the recall of Fluconazole 200mg due to discoloration of tablets. Further reference is made to the investigation performed by Rwanda FDA which confirmed that some incriminated batches were imported into Rwanda.” Reads part of the notice seen by Kenya Insights.

“It is with this background that Rwanda FDA recalls from the Rwandan market the following batches of Fluconazole 200mg tablets.” It adds.

“Rwanda FDA instructs all importers, central medical stores, wholesalers, RMS branches, retailers, Public and Private Health Facilities to stop the distribution of the above mentioned batches of fluconazole 200mg tablets and return them to their suppliers for proper management,” read the statement

All the importers and suppliers are supposed to report to RFDA within 10 days from today and as well issue the Health Ministry with quantities returned and final stocks on hand.

It remains unclear if Kenya where the drug is in circulation will also follow suit and recall as well as other countries wit could’ve been possibly supplied to. It’s also unclear whether the company will be subjected to standard checks in the wake of the Rwanda incident.
