Excessive Levels of Chromium Lead to Chinese Recall of 13 Drugs

Fri, 20 Apr 2012 12:02:14 EST

This week, China's State Food and Drug Administration halted the sale of thirteen drugs that are believed to contain excessive levels of chromium. The capsules were manufactured with industrial gelatin, which contains higher levels of chromium than edible gelatin.

The administration says they have started an investigation into the case. China has a history of struggling with pharmaceutical safety problems, and public outcry has prompted the government to be more severe in dealing with contamination problems.

According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, excess chromium ingestion can lead to irritation and ulcers in the stomach and small intestine and could cause anemia.

'Typically, improperly produced drugs are a problem for developing countries, but the problem has become increasingly prevalent in the United States as pharmaceutical supply chains span the globe,' states Diane Miskowski, MPH, Business Development Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc. 'At EMSL, we help companies deal with these concerns in the industry and offer a wide variety of cutting-edge pharmaceutical testing services in our cGMP compliant laboratory.'
