   The Department of Health (DH) today (October 31) endorsed a licensed medicine wholesaler, B. Braun Medical (HK) Ltd, to recall three batches of Nutriflex Omega Special Emulsion for Infusion (Hong Kong Registration Number: HK-60999) from the market due to a potential quality issue.

     The affected products are listed below: 

Pack size Batches
1,250 millilitres 174738051
182838052
1,875ml 174938051

     The DH received notification from B. Braun that products of the above-mentioned batches might have deviations in pH value, colouration and quality of emulsion, probably due to possible damage of the overwrapping of the product bags. As a precautionary measure, B. Braun has recalled the affected batches of the product. 

     The above product, mainly containing fatty acids, amino acids, electrolytes and glucose, is a parenteral nutrition preparation for nutrient supplement when oral or enteral nutrition is not feasible. According to B. Braun, the affected batches have been supplied to the Hospital Authority and private hospitals.

     B. Braun has set up a hotline (2277 6100) to answer related enquiries.

     So far, the DH has not received any adverse reaction report in connection with the product. The DH will closely monitor the recall.

     Patients who require use of the above product should seek advice from their healthcare professionals for appropriate arrangements. There are alternative medicines available on the market with similar indications.
