The FDA is warning about a counterfeit cancer drug that's posing as Avastin!
It may have been purchased and used in a number of medical facilities in the United States, so the FDA has sent out letters to 19 medical practices known to have purchased unapproved cancer medications.
The counterfeit drug is missing the key ingredient — Bevacizumab.
"The counterfeit product is not safe or effective and should not be used."
Here's what to look for:
'The unapproved cancer medications — potentially including the counterfeit version of Avastin — were purchased from a foreign supplier known as Quality Specialty Products, which may also be known as Montana Health Care Solutions, according to the FDA.'
Everyone needs to keep their eye out, for real. It could be super dangerous. That's including doctors and pharmacists!
Plus, it's not helping your cancer or whatever you need it for!
