To date, no injuries or other adverse reactions have been associated with the recall, FDA said.

In the midst of an opioid addiction and overdose epidemic that appears to only be getting worse, the company that manufactures naloxone-an antidote for opioid overdoses that U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams has recommended more Americans carry with them-has issued a nationwide recall for two lots of the drug.

The risk is reduced by the possibility of detection, as the labeling contains a clear statement directing a visual inspection of the product for particulate matter and discoloration.

"We're at 16 drug-related deaths so far and on track for another record year, with or without (naloxone)", Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. said Tuesday.

Naloxone, also known by the brand name Narcan, can reverse an opiate overdose, but it can wear off and victims must get medical attention afterward.

Those effects range from local irritation, allergic reactions, phlebitis, end-organ granuloma, tissue ischemia, pulmonary emboli, pulmonary dysfunction, pulmonary infarction, and toxicity. When it is used, it is able to restore normal breathing in someone who stopped breathing due to using opioids. "Hospira, Inc., has notified wholesalers/distributors/hospitals to arrange for return of any recalled product". Adverse events may be reported to FDA via its MedWatch program.

78 people die each day from opioid overdoses.

The recall affects single-use cartage units with lot numbers 72680LL and 76510LL.
