Latin Foods Market Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Artri King Reforzado Con Ortiga Y Omega 3 Due to the Presence of Undeclared Diclofenac and Dexamethasone
Latin Foods Market is voluntarily recalling one lot, LOTE 334 21, of Artri King Reforzado con Ortiga y Omega 3 tablets to the consumer level. FDA analysis has found the product to be tainted with diclofenac and dexamethasone. Diclofenac and dexamethasone are both FDA approved drugs. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) indicated for the management of pain and arthritis and dexamethasone is a corticosteroid indicated for a variety of indications including but not limited to arthritis. The presence of diclofenac and dexamethasone in Artri King Reforzado con Ortiga y Omega 3 renders it an unapproved drug for which the safety and efficacy has not been established and, therefore, subject to recall.
