Company name: Eli Lilly and Company
Brand name: Lilly
Product recalled: Glucagon Emergency Kit
Reason of the recall: Loss of potency
FDA Recall date: September 26, 2021
Recall details: Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) is voluntarily recalling lot D239382D, Expiration April 2022, of Glucagon Emergency Kit... for Low Blood Sugar (Glucagon for Injection, 1 mg per vial; Diluent for Glucagon, 1 mL syringe), to the consumer/user level. Lilly is recalling lot D239382D to the patient level because of a product complaint reporting that the vial of Glucagon was in liquid form instead of the powder form.
The firm’s investigation indicates that the liquid in this Glucagon vial could be related to the manufacturing process. The use of the liquid form of this product may fail to treat severe low blood sugar due to loss of potency.
Risk Statement: Severe hypoglycemia in patients with diabetes, if not reversed, can potentially cause adverse health consequences ranging from transient, minor complaints to neurological damage, seizures, and even death if not promptly treated. Associated with the one product complaint, it was reported to Lilly that the involved patient experienced lack of drug effect and also reported subsequent seizures.
Glucagon Emergency Kit is used as an anti-hypoglycemic agent and a gastrointestinal motility inhibitor indicated for the treatment of severe hypoglycemia in pediatric and adult patients with diabetes mellitus. The product is packaged in a kit containing 1mg of freeze-dried (lyophilized) product in a 3 mL vial and a pre-filled diluent syringe.

The lot number can be found on the label of the kit as well as the vial (refer to the photos provided below – Appendix A). The lot was distributed nationwide to wholesalers and retailers.

Company name: ICU Medical, Inc.
Brand name: Hospira
Product recalled: Aminosyn II, 15%, An Amino Acid Injection, Sulfite
Reason of the recall: Presence of visible particulate matter
FDA Recall date: September 07, 2021
Recall details: ICU Medical, Inc. is voluntarily recalling one lot (2,112 units) of Aminosyn... II, 15%, An Amino Acid Injection, Sulfite Free intravenous (IV) solution to the hospital/user level due to the presence of visible particulate matter identified as fibers, hair, and proteinaceous material along with other particles.
ICU Medical became aware of this issue while inspecting retain samples as part of routine process. Administration of a drug product that contains particulate matter could result in adverse events ranging from inflammation at the site of injection to more serious events that could include the formation of a blood clot obstructing the flow of blood which could lead to end-organ damage or death.
To date, ICU Medical, Inc. has not received reports of adverse events or illnesses related to this recall. Aminosyn II, Sulfite-Free, (an amino acid injection) infused with dextrose by peripheral vein infusion is indicated as a source of nitrogen in the nutritional support of patients with adequate stores of body fat, in whom, for short periods of time, oral nutrition cannot be tolerated, is undesirable, or inadequate.
Aminosyn II can be administered peripherally with dilute (5 to 10%) dextrose solution and I.V. fat emulsion as a source of nutritional support. This form of nutritional support can help to preserve protein and reduce the breakdown of organic or inorganic materials, such as proteins, sugars, fatty acids, etc. in stress conditions where oral intake is inadequate. Aminosyn II is also indicated for central vein infusion to prevent or reverse excreting more nitrogen than is being taken in in patients where the intestinal tract, by the oral, surgical opening into the stomach for the introduction of food or surgical procedure for a feeding tube routes cannot or should not be used and gastrointestinal absorption of protein is impaired.
Product was distributed nationwide both by ICU Medical direct to customers and through medical distributors. The product is for human use only. ICU Medical acquired this product from Hospira, a Pfizer company; therefore, the affected product contains a Hospira NDC number and a Hospira label. The affected product lot, manufactured in the U.S. by ICU Medical in November 2020, is listed below:
- Aminosyn® II 15% An Amino Acid Injection, Sulfite-Free. NDC: 0409-7171-17. Catalog Number: 07171-17. Lot Number: 4989094. Expiration Date: 01-Apr-2022. Configuration: Pharmacy Bulk. Package 2-liter. Flexible. Container. Manufacture Date: November 2020. Distribution Dates: January 2021 – March 2021.
