The AP reports that officials with the Food and Drug Administration warned doctors recently that “about 11 recalled lots of an intravenous hypertension drug made by the Medicines Co. are contaminated with bits of steel.” According to the agency, the particles “could potentially disrupt blood flow to the brain, kidney, liver heart and lungs.” Medicines Co. recalled the affected lots of Cleviprex (clevidipine butyrate).

If you believe you have been prescribed this drug, contact your doctor immediately.
