9/14/2011 7:31:16 AM

The agency issued the company, which is a unit of the Japanese pharmaceutical firm Daiichi Sankyo Co. Ltd. (4568.TO), a warning letter on Aug. 31. The letter was made public Tuesday. The FDA cited Luitpold for failures to resolve problems with particulate contamination in some of the company's injectable drugs, which the agency deemed "a persistent and serious issue at your firm." The FDA said failures to fully investigate particulates and product failures "are repeat violations" found in annual inspections since 2008.
