Identifying features

Name: SCHOLAR® Fungicide

APVMA Registration Number: 63391

APVMA Label Number: 122202

Batch Number(s): MHA0G22-ID1

Reason for recall

After storage of SCHOLAR® Fungicide (batch number MHA0G22-ID1) for an extended period (about 18 months) sediment may form in the product container. No other batches are affected.

Lethabarb Euthanasia Injection

Reference: 2022/011

Published date: 5 April 2022

Identifying features

Name: Lethabarb Euthanasia Injection

APVMA Registration Number: 47815

Batch Number(s):

  • 250 mL pack size: 62392V1, 62783V1, 63066V1, 63497V1, 63572V1
  • 450mL pack size: 61742V1, 61859V1, 62152V1, 62392V2, 62603V1, 62783V2, 63066V2, 63114V1, 63497V2, 63572V2

Reason for recall

This is not a product nor a batch recall. 

Virbac has recently received a few reports about the cap on the Lethabarb bottle, which in a very limited number of units presents a slight possibility of the rubber seal coming off the bottle whilst removing the red cap.

Hazard

While the risk of the closure system failing is low, we advise that you take particular care (i.e. apply gentle force) when removing the red cap from the Lethabarb bottle.

What to do

The liquid inside the bottle is fit for use, however, to minimise the risk of potential exposure, if there is any concern that the cap is loose (i.e. when applying gentle force the red seal + crimp turns) it is recommended that you do not use the product and contact our Customer Service Team on 1800 242 100 for a replacement and further advice on secure disposal.

For further information

Please direct all calls and any queries concerning this voluntary recall to the Virbac Customer Service Team on 1800 242 100.

Reason for recall
