One Lot of HPV Vaccine Gardasil Recalled Over Glass Contaminants
By the Editors
A single lot of Merck's Gardasil (human papillomavirus quadrivalent vaccine) has been recalled because of the potential for glass particles from breakage during manufacturing. The lot number, J007354, includes some 740,000 vials. The company estimates that ten vials may contain the particles.
There is no need to revaccinate anyone who received Gardasil from this lot, and there have been no reports of adverse effects.
