Eight batches added to ACE inhibitor recall

Pharmacists reminded to check for signs of contamination

Eight batches have been added to an Apo-Perindopril recall, bringing the total to 11.


The recall follows potential contamination by fine particles of dark silica that appear to have escaped the desiccant cylinder placed in bottles to absorb moisture.

The telltale signs of contamination are specks on the tablets or a fine dust coating on the tablets or inside of the bottle, say the TGA and supplier Apotex.

Here is the full list of affected batches:
Apo-Perindopril Arginine 2.5mg

  • NC6619 EXP 02/2020
  • NC6620 EXP 02
