The Zambia Medicines Regulatory Authority -ZAMRA- has recalled 28 different types of medicines from the market.
The medicines are manufactured by Glumex Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing Private Limited of India.
ZAMRA has also revoked Marketing Authorisations for all medicines and allied substances manufactured by Glumex Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing Private Limited.
ZAMRA Acting Director General MAKOMANI SIYANGA has attributed the revocation of the marketing authorization to failure by the facility to comply with the World Health Organisation’s current Good Manufacturing Practices Guidelines.
Mr. SINYANGA says the quality, safety and efficacy of products from Glumex is not guaranteed.
In a statement to ZNBC News in Lusaka Mr. SINYANGA has since advised all health facilities, pharmaceutical outlets and members of the public in possession of any product manufactured by Glumex to stop distribution, dispensing or using them.
He said medicines should be returned to the supplier for replacement with better quality assured products.
