Medical devices and prescription drugs are some of the most important products many consumers purchase because they keep their bodies functioning on a daily basis. However, even with these products there is room for manufacturing and human error.

The Food and Drug Administration tries to stay on top of errors in the production of these products so the consumers who depend on these products can find out about them through speedy recalls.

Modern Medicine reports Albuterol Sulfate Inhalation Solution has been recalled because the 3 mL in 25, 30, and 60 unit dose vials have been marked incorrectly with 0.5 mg/3 mL, which could lead to drug injuries.

The error could lead to drug injuries such as temporary effects or life-threatening effects.

The drug is used to treat asthma in children and adults. Those patients who have purchased the recalled product should return it to the retailer from which it was purchased. Retailers should follow the FDA procedure for handling the recalled drug which could lead to drug injuries.
