Sagent Pharmaceuticals Initiates A Nationwide Voluntary Recall Of Two Lots Of Zoledronic Acid Injection, 5mg/100mL Due To Potential Lack Of Container Integrity

Sagent has initiated this voluntary recall of Zoledronic Acid Injection, 5mg/100mL to the user level due to the discovery of four (4) leaking premix bags detected during an investigation conducted in response to a product complaint.
