Why Are Prescription Drugs Recalled in the United States?

A large section of our population uses prescription medications. Some people use prescription drugs for short-term treatment for an injury or illness. Other patients may need to use prescription drugs for long-term maintenance of a health condition. Therefore, pharmaceuticals are a huge, billion-dollar-a-year industry.

Many prescription medications are safe, even though all drugs have potential side effects. However, defects can make a prescription drug dangerous to use.

A drug company can initiate a recall on its own or because of a request by the FDA. There are three types of drug recalls that may be issued in the United States:

  • Class I Recall – A defective or dangerous drug could cause death or severe injuries.
  • Class II Recall – A drug poses a slight threat of a severe nature or could cause a temporary health problem.
  • Class III Recall – A drug violates the FDA labeling and/or manufacturing laws, but is unlikely to cause adverse health events.

You can check if your prescription medications have been recalled on the FDA’s website. Some reasons a drug might be recalled include, but are not limited to, reports of adverse events, defects, and contamination. A drug may also be recalled if it contains labeling errors or undisclosed dangerous side effects.

Call your doctor immediately if you believe you are taking a recalled prescription drug. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience adverse health events when taking a prescription medication.
