According to the latest Enforcement Report by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), Dr Reddy’s Laboratories is recalling Javygtor (sapropterin dihydrochloride) Powder for Oral Solution (100mg) due to it being a ‘Sub-potent Drug’.

Additionally, the USFDA mentioned that FDC Ltd is recalling 382,104 units of Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Solution, which is used to treat glaucoma. The drug maker is recalling the affected lot due to a “Defective Container”.
