FDA Warns Bayer After Routine Inspection of Facilities

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent a warning letter to Bayer about drug manufacturing practices at its German headquarters. The FDA’s complaints were triggered by a routine inspection in January of this year.

In a statement, the company said the regulatory agency has no evidence of risk to patient safety. As a result of this inspection and the time to complete the necessary corrective actions, Bayer expects temporary supply limitations on some of its products, including Adalat, Aspirin Cardio, Avelox, and Levitra.
