Kingsport, TN (SafetyAlerts) - The Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, (a division of FDA), has advised that Medicine Shoppe, a Kingsport, Tenn. firm is recalling all lots of Urokinase that have not exceeded the use by date. The recall was initiated because the product has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and therefore there is no assurance that the product is safe and effective for its intended use.
