Pfizer Animal Health is voluntarily recalling eight production lots of TERRAMYCIN® (oxytetracycline HCI) Scours Tablets. Working in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pfizer Animal Health voluntarily initiated this recall when it was determined that certain lots manufactured by a third-party vendor contained an active pharmaceutical ingredient that was sourced from a facility prior to reapproval by the FDA.
The use of, or exposure to, this product is not expected to pose adverse health consequences. Dairy and beef producers have depended on TERRAMYCIN Scours Tablets for many years as a versatile, broad-spectrum antibiotic.
This recall affects approximately three months of production. The specific lots included are:
·         Bottle of 24 tablets, 250 mg   – Lots: PF9Y020A, PF9Y035A, PF9Y036B, PF9Z006 
·         Bottle of 100 tablets, 250 mL – Lots: PF9Y020B, PF9Y035B, PF9Y036A, PF9Z005 
Pfizer Animal Health is working closely with the FDA to correct this situation. The company is committed to maintaining the safe and effective use of antibiotics and appreciates your support in this matter.
Customers with questions should contact Pfizer Animal Health Customer Service at 800-733-5500.
Important Safety Information: Discontinue treatment at least seven days prior to slaughter. Not for use in lactating dairy cattle. Do not use in calves intended for veal.
