Recall of Asmol and Ventolin inhalers

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Alphapharm, in consultation with the Therapeutic Goods Administration, are recalling several batches of Ventolin and Asmol inhalers due to a fault in the delivery mechanism of a small number of inhalers within each batch. This can lead to less than the full dose being delivered for each puff. The only batches affected are as follows: Ventolin Batch numbers KN7170, KN7173, KN7178, and KN7179 Asmol Batch Numbers KL6790, KL6795, KL6796, KL6797, KL6798, and KL6799 So if you have an inhaler with the batch number listed above you can return it to your pharmacy for replacement of a different batch if available. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.
