Regulators in France have reported the first findings of an investigation into Teva Pharmceutical after some zopiclone sleeping pills were found in packs of the diuretic furosemide. The country's National Security Agency for Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) announced a recall of two batches of Teva's furosemide 40mg last week following the discovery, but this was later extended to cover all lots of the product after the death of a 91-year-old man who was taking furosemide. Four inspectors from the Agency have this week been investigating the Teva plant that packaged the drugs, but the ANSM said yesterday that their preliminary findings that, while they were unable to ascertain what caused zopiclone to end up in boxes of furosemide, they “did not identify any major malfunction of the site”.
