Two drugs recalled by health authorities

Vietnamese health authorities have recalled the sale of two drugs because they failed to meet with the standard health requirements.


The Vietnam Drug Administration has decided to remove the drug Paracetamol – BIVID 1g/100ml from all counters. This drug is indicated for the short-term treatment of moderate pain, especially following surgery and for the short-term treatment of fever.

The drug was made by Sanavita Pharmaceuticals GmbH-Germany and imported by the National Pharmaceutical Company No.2. It was from lot number 090099 with an expiry date for November 2012 and registered number VN-4252-07.

Health authorities also announced a ban on the sale and use of the traditional medicine ‘Dac che phat lanh hoan’. The drug is made by the Quan Y Sanh Company at 85 Tan Thanh Street in district 5. The drug was removed from sale counters as it failed to meet with requirements which check bacteria contamination.
