ETHEX Morphine Sulfate Recall

The lawyers at Morgan & Morgan reviewed cases against ETHEX CORPORATION, a manufacturer of the pain medication Morphine Sulfatewhich admits to manufacturing and distributing Morphine pills with double the prescribed strength. Consumers are at the risk of morphine overdose which could lead to side effects including breathing problems, erratic behavior, seizures, low blood pressure, nausea and vomiting and even death.

The FDA Alert

On June 10, 2008 the FDA issued a MedWatch Email Alert, "Morphine Sulfate 60 mg Extended Release Tablets - Recall of a Single Lot Due to a Report of a Tablet With Twice the Appropriate Thickness". A few days later, however, ETHEX expanded their morphine pill recall to include specific additional lots of morphine sulfate 60 mg extended release tablets, and specific lots of morphine sulfate 30 mg extended release tablets, as a precaution, due to the possible presence of oversized tablets.

ETHEX Recall

Oversized tablets may contain as much as two times the labeled level of active morphine sulfate. The recalled lots were distributed by ETHEX Corporation under an "ETHEX" label between June 2006 and May 2008.

The lot numbers involved in the recall are:

  • Morphine Sulfate ER 30mg Tablet/NDC # 58177-320-04: Lots 75090, 77846, 77847, 80048, 83320, 89661, 89665, 90252 through 90258, and 93284

  • Morphine Sulfate ER 60mg Tablet/NDC # 58177-330-04: Lots 91762 (previously reported), 75091, 75092, 77848 through 77851, 82517, 82518, 83333, 83817, 83862, 84111, 84112, 84315, 84900, 85326, 85335, 85807, 86270 through 86276, 87723, 87939, 88007, 89083, 89668, 89669, 89821, 90260 through 90272, and 91763 through 91765.

According to the ETHEX June 13 Press Release, there are indications the drug company is unsure how and when the oversized tablets were being produced and distributed.

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court!
