2 GSK antidepressants contaminated, FDA says

paxilThe U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that the drug ingredient paroxetine used in two GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) anti-depressants has been contaminated by a material from the waste tank of a GSK plant in Cork, Ireland, according to a report published by Reuters on Tuesday, April 1.

The FDA also stated that the pharmaceutical giant failed to conduct a follow-up investigation after a controller found some irregularities at the company’s Cork plant. The agency added that the company was not able to inform consumers about the concern.

GSK already suggested a wholesale recall of some of the batches of the drugs in question.
