Criminals disrupt Australian Valium supply

Criminals have disrupted Australia’s Valium supply by removing the drug from 50-tablet packs and replacing it with unrelated medicines.

This has sparked an urgent recall of 5mg Valium in 50-tablet blister packs.

Batches of the medicines used as replacements have also been recalled. These are:

  • BTC paracetamol codeine. Batch number is 40970, expiry May 2018.
  • Rosuvastatin. Batch number is F4250, expiry August 2019.
  • Pantaprazole. Batch number is F4442, expiry October 2018.

Valium is a Roche product and the others are Apotex products.
