Thousands of Xarelto Bottles Recalled Over Contamination Concerns
Late last month – on Tuesday, October 21 st – Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen unit announced a recall of the popular blood-thinner medication Xarelto (rivaroxaban). According to officials from Janssen, 13,500 bottles of Xarelto are being recalled after microbial contamination was found in a sample.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also released an Enforcement Report confirming that the recall was prompted by a Xarelto sample which tested positive for microbial contamination. The contaminated sample – which came from a production plant in Puerto Rico – was tested after a customer filed a complaint.
Janssen, which has already faced a number of complaints involving Xarelto, issued a nationwide voluntary recall shortly after discovering evidence of contamination. According to an official statement, Janssen made the decision to recall the entire lot of bottles manufactured at its Puerto Rico facility, even though contamination was found in only one sample bottle.
More Concerns About Xarelto
Xarelto’s contamination recall is only the latest concern about the popular pharmaceutical, which has been heavily scrutinized for associated adverse effects. In recent years, Xarelto has been linked to cases of injury, hospitalization, and death due to issues of uncontrolled bleeding. These adverse events include cases of internal bleeding, subdural hemorrhaging, and severe bleeding that cannot be stopped. Many victims and families have begun filing lawsuits for the harm and suffering they experienced after taking Xarelto.
