Voluntary Recall Associated with Oxygen-Absorbing Canisters Not Attributed to Multisorb Products, Company States
After recent reports of a voluntary recall because of an uncharacteristic odor associated with an oxygen-absorbing canister, Multisorb issued a statement that its StabilOx Oxygen Absorbing Canisters were not the cause nor were involved with this drug product recall.
"Issues with substandard oxygen absorbers are a systemic issue in the industry," Multisorb stated in a press release issued on April 8. "Though not the fault of the pharmaceutical manufacturers that closely adhere to regulatory requirements, recalls like this create a long-lasting, negative impact for the manufacturer as well as for the consumers that rely on the drug product."
Multisorb Technologies continues to supply the pharmaceutical industry with its non-toxic StabilOx Oxygen Absorbing Canisters. StabilOx Canisters do not exhibit the unpleasant odor that initiated the recall, Multisorb states. These canisters are non toxic and formaldehyde free.
"Unlike the competing oxygen absorbing canister that offers only a minimum 20cc of oxygen capacity and thereby requires the supplemental use of expensive EVOH-based oxygen barrier bottles, Multisorb’s StabilOx Canisters offer a minimum 100cc of oxygen capacity and can be used with standard HDPE bottles," the company stated. "Consequently, a container-closure system using StabilOx Canisters can cost 50% less than the competing canister/bottle system."
When used within a foil-laminate heat induction sealed standard HDPE bottle, StabilOx Canisters will effectively reduce oxygen to levels below 1% while maintaining humidity levels to <30%, Multisorb reports.
Multisorb also offers its APA-9000 StabilOx Canister Dispenser for integrating into existing packaging lines.
