Lupin recalls more Suprax

Rapidly expanding Indian generic drugmaker Lupin has stumbled, having to recall 5 lots of the antibacterial med Suprax (cefixime) because it failed purity tests. The voluntary recall accounts for more than 9,000 bottles but follows a much larger recall of the drug last year. According to the FDA enforcement report, Lupin actually initiated the Class III recall in January after 9-month stability testing found the products didn't meet criteria for total impurities. The Mumbai-based drugmaker told the Economic Times that the voluntary recall was of "no financial consequence." The newspaper says Lupin last year had to recall more than 64,000 bottles.
