India API Site Warned for Data Integrity, Stray Lizard, Bird Poop

Oct. 14, 2015

The U.S. FDA sent a warning letter to Unimark Remedies, following the inspection of its API manufacturing facility in Bavla, India, noting data integrity issues and GMP violations.

The letter, which referenced a March 2014 inspection, noted data integrity issues including: failure to document production and analytical testing activities; failure to prevent unauthorized access or changes to data; failure to maintain complete data derived from all testing and to ensure compliance with established standards.

In addition, the FDA investigator found a wild lizard, what appeared to be a bird’s nest near the ceiling,  and bird feces in the general raw material warehouse.

According to RAPS, Unimark Remedies makes APIs used for the antibiotics cephalosporin and carbapenem.
