Zolpidem Tartrate Sublingual Tablets Voluntary Recall


On May 10, 2016, Gavis Pharmaceuticals issued a voluntary recall on zolpidem tartrate sublingual tablets.Gavis Pharmaceuticals issued this recall because its packaging for certain lots may not meet the child-resistance standards as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). There is nothing wrong with the medication itself. The product meets all quality requirements specified by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because the manufacturer’s child-resistance packaging may not meet PPPA standards, there is an increased chance that young children could access the medication, which could harm the children.
