Allergy & Asthma Network and Avella Specialty Pharmacy Highlight Risks Associated with Latex Allergies and Latex in Healthcare
March 28, 2017| CATEGORIES: Avella , Press Release

VIENNA, VA / PHOENIX, AZ, March 28, 2017 – Today, Allergy & Asthma Network and Avella Specialty Pharmacy released a new white paper to underscore the significant risks related to latex allergies and the use of latex in healthcare. Specifically, there is substantial confusion as to the meaning of “latex free” in healthcare. In fact, the FDA has urged manufacturers to drop the term “latex free” or a ”does not contain latex” claim from labels, because of the challenge to ensure a product is completely devoid of natural rubber latex proteins that cause allergic reactions. According to the FDA, these labeling techniques are not sufficiently specific, not necessarily scientifically accurate, and may be misunderstood and applied too widely. 

Avella Specialty Pharmacy Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of All Sterile Products Produced at Advanced Pharma Houston Location
February 23, 2017| CATEGORIES: Avella , Corporate , Press Release

HOUSTON, Feb. 23, 2017 - Advanced Pharma, Inc. d/b/a Avella of Houston is conducting a voluntary recall of all unexpired sterile injectable products labeled "latex free" that were produced at Advanced Pharma, Inc.'s Houston location between September 1, 2016 and February 16, 2017 to the user level (hospitals and institutions) because such products may contain synthetic latex and/or natural latex.

Avella and Advanced Pharma have been unable to confirm with clarity whether its "latex free" label statements are accurate in all cases and are therefore conducting this recall in an abundance of caution.  The risk of potential adverse events related to a latex allergy, while rare, can range from local site reactions including swelling and inflammation to allergic reactions, which could be life-threatening to users who are sensitive to latex. These products were not distributed directly to patients or consumers, but rather to healthcare facilities (hospitals and institutions).
