Mobius Theraputics™ Issues a Voluntary Recall of Mitosol®


1/10/2013 7:41:26 AM

ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - January 10, 2013) - On 10 January 2013, Mobius Therapeutics, LLC, St. Louis, MO, announced today that it is conducting a voluntary recall of 2 lots of Mitosol® (mitomycin for solution), 0.2 mg/vial, Kit for Ophthalmic Use.

These two lots of Mitosol (mitomycin for solution) Kits may contain a strain of yeast on one or more parts in the kit and should be considered non-sterile and unsafe for use.
