The recall was expanded to include seven lots of Treprostinil Injection 20mg/20mL (1mg/mL) to the consumer level.

"Treprostinil Injection is formulated for subcutaneous or intravenous infusion. The product is a prostacyclin vasodilator indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension," officials state in the recall notice.

Reason For Recall


The products are recalled due to the "potential" presence of "silicone particulates in the product solution."

This can cause some serious health issues if the "foreign material," reaches blood vessels.

"If the particulate matter reaches the blood vessels it can travel to various organs and block blood vessels in the heart, lungs or brain which can cause stroke and even lead to death," officials say.


No health issues have been reported, as of this writing.

The recalled items were distributed nationwide to wholesalers and hospitals from June 16, 2022, through August 7, 2023.
