Baltimore Pharmacies Suspected of Issuing Counterfeit and Expired Drugs

On August 8, 2008, the FDA issued a warning advising consumers who filled prescriptions at two Baltimore, Maryland pharmacies that the drugs they received from the pharmacies may have been counterfeit or expired. As the warning states, many of the suspected drugs, for which neither efficacy nor safety has been established by the FDA, are used for the treatment of serious conditions.

The two Baltimore pharmacies in question are in The Medicine Shoppe chain of pharmacies: one located at 8035A Liberty Road and one at 5900 Reistertown Road.

The full warning, and a listing of the suspected drugs, is available on the FDA’s website. http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/NEWS/2008/NEW01873.html If you believe that you filled a prescription for one of the listed drugs and would like to consult with an attorney to determine whether or not you have a lawsuit, please visit us at our website, http://www.pbmattorneys.com , or call us directly at (888) 348-6787.
