Recall on All ETHEX Brand Oxycodone Tablets and Capsules

The ETHEX Corporation, a subsidiary of KV Pharmaceutical, has recalled ALL lots of ETHEX brand oxycodone immediate release tablets and capsules. These recalled tablets and capsules may have been manufactured under conditions that did not meet the current manufacturing standards called Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Some ETHEX products have recently had specific lots recalled due to defects found, including oversized tablets. ETHEX is now recalling all of their products to ensure that no other defective products remain available to patients. The ETHEX tablets and capsules and the NDC numbers involved in the recall are listed below.

The NDC number is a product number that is sometimes listed on a prescription label.

Oxycodone HCl IR Tablets, 5mg (NDC 58177-625-04 & NDC 58177-625-11)

Oxycodone HCl IR Tablets, 10mg (NDC 58177-461-04)

Oxycodone HCl IR Tablets, 15mg, (NDC 58177-445-04)

There is a national shortage of oxycodone pills due to recalls by several different companies and the other companies are trying to pick up the slack. Here are the following manufacturers and what they are doing:

Mallinckrodt continues to work diligently to meet the market need during this temporary period of limited supply.

Xanodyne is releasing product as it becomes available.

Vintage Pharmaceuticals is releasing product as it becomes available.

The shortage may continue until may/june of this year so you may want to have your doctor switch you to liquid oxycodone as a substitute.
