Contaminated heparin is seized

November 07, 2008|Times Wire Services

U.S. marshals seized 11 contaminated lots of the blood-thinner heparin made from Chinese ingredients by a maker that ships to drug and device manufacturers in several countries.

The marshals took the drugs from closely held Celsus Laboratories Inc. in Cincinnati, the Food and Drug Administration said.

The action followed unsuccessful efforts to persuade the company into an "effective" recall, the FDA said.
