Company Announcement

Altaire Pharmaceuticals, Inc., announced on July 5 that it is voluntarily recalling the Over-the-Counter (OTC) drug products and lots, within expiry, sold at Wal-Mart and Walgreens.

Administration of a non-sterile product intended to be sterile may result in serious and potentially life threatening infections or death.
