US News

Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain ABILIFY® (aripiprazole) Tablets in the United States due to cross-contamination from extremely small amounts of another active pharmaceutical ingredient manufactured on the same equipment. The ABILIFY® (aripiprazole) Tablets affected are the 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, and 30 mg doses. The 2 mg and 20 mg doses are not affected. Based on sample testing performed, there is no material patient risk associated with the level of contamination found. The detected amount of the ingredient was confirmed to be extremely small and significantly below the permitted daily exposure (PDE) established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The voluntary recall has been initiated by Otsuka in the United States out of an abundance of caution, with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  This recall is limited to the United States.
