MHRA recalls batches of Metoprolol 50mg tablets

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has recalled some batches of Metoprolol 50mg tablets after a barcode-scanning issue was reported by the product’s manufacturer.

Accord Healthcare Ltd told the MHRA that some packs when decommissioned and scanned in pharmacies returned the status ‘export.’

“Although there is no risk to product quality, any remaining stock should be quarantined and returned,” the MHRA said. The affected batches are P2000978 and P2000285.

The MHRA urged pharmacies to stop supplying the batches immediately, quarantine all remaining stock and return it to their supplier.
