Federal officials revoke permit of NJ pharmacy

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The U.S. Department of Justice has revoked the permit of a New Jersey-based compounding pharmacy where some of its products were discovered to be contaminated with mold.

Tinton Falls-based Med Prep Consulting ceased operations in March after it was revealed the pharmacy had shipped intravenous bags contaminated with mold to a Connecticut hospital. The pharmacy and the Food and Drug Administration announced a national recall of all products compounded by Med Prep.

No injuries or illnesses have been linked to the contamination.

DOJ officials announced Friday they've issued a permanent injunction against Med Prep and its president and owner, Gerald R. Tighe.

An FDA inspection concluded the company failed to create and follow appropriate procedures to prevent contamination of drugs which were purported to be sterile.
