Eighteen lots of fentanyl transdermal system C-11 patches have been recalled by Actavis. The fear leading to the recall relates to concerns that the active ingredient could release into the patient’s system at “an accelerated rate,” potentially leading to hypoventilation, respiratory depression and stoppage of breathing.

For more information, you can find the manufacturer’s voluntary recall notification information on the FDA’s website.
