Voluntary Recall Of 2 Batches Of Coversyl

The attention of the Agency has been drawn to the voluntary recall of 2 batches of 10mg Coversyl distributed in Nigeria from Egypt by Servier Egypt Industries. Coversyl is used to reduce blood pressure and also to treat heart failure. The batches in question were found to have brownish stains on the tablets which after analysis by Servier Laboratories showed microbial contamination which was associated with a decrease in drug substance content and high level of impurities suggesting probable improper storing, deliberate adulteration and/ or reused/ recycled tablets introduced in genuine packaging after release into the Nigerian market.
