Ministry orders recall of Julphar’s Profinal Suspension

6 Feb 2021

The Ministry of Health (MoH), represented by the Directorate General of Pharmaceutical Affairs and Drug Control, issued a circular to recall and suspend the dispensation of ‘Profinal Suspension’, manufactured by the Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries, Julphar.

The withdrawal of Profinal Suspension – a paediatric pain-relieving, fever-lowering, and anti-inflammatory oral medicine – was due to non-compliance to the approved specifications concerning the limit of the active ingredient and the presence of undissolved depositions accumulated on the bottle wall of the product, which does not dissolve by shaking, the ministry said.

The local agent of the manufacturer has been notified to arrange the recall of the product’s batches.
