CNX Therapeutics Ltd. have notified the MHRA that specified batches of Latuda film-coated tablets will be released without EAN barcodes on the cartons. The batch numbers and the expiry dates are present and clearly visible on the cartons and on the blisters. Although fully in line with the Marketing Authorisation, the absence of the barcodes may lead to queries as these may sometimes be used for stock control and automated dispensing.
This stock has not yet been distributed, however due to the consideration for stock control and automated dispensing, this notification is being shared in advance of distribution from CNX Therapeutics Ltd to wholesalers and pharmacies. The expected distribution dates for these batches will take place between April 2022 and July 2022.
Further information, the affected products and advice for healthcare professional is available on the MHRA website.
