Hospira says saline recall will not make shortage worse

Hospira ($HSP), the country's largest producer of sterile drugs, is recalling two dozen lots of saline solution, along with 30 lots of other products, because the bags on one of its delivery systems can leak and products might get contaminated. The recall of the saline comes in the midst of a national shortage, but the Lake Forest, IL-based company insists the recall should not make the shortage worse. It said it believed most of the lots had been used already after Hospira warned providers to check bags closely to make sure they were undamaged and the saline was clear. Story | More
