Mylan UK Healthcare Ltd has informed us that the GTIN barcode applied on the above batches is incorrect. The GTIN number that should have been allocated for these batches of capsules is 05060035240173, however, 05060035241477 was applied in error which scans the batches as Zamadol Melt Tablet 50mg. All other information on the carton and label, including the EAN barcode is correct for the above batches of Zamadol SR 50 mg prolonged-release hard capsules.
There may be residual risk in cases where wholesalers and pharmacies use automated inventory system to dispense the affected batches within the pharmacy or wholesale facility. Due to concerns with continuity of supply these batches are not being recalled at this time.
