Statement on Pan Pharmaceuticals products

Friday, 20 June 2003

The Food Standards Agency is today updating information on products made by the Australian company Pan Pharmaceuticals, some of which have been on sale in the UK. The company, which made food supplements, herbal products and medicines, had its manufacturing licence suspended by the Australian authorities due to a series of serious safety and quality control breaches.

The Agency is not aware of any health problems reported in connection with the food supplements, non-licensed medicines and herbal products that have been supplied to the UK by Pan Pharmaceuticals. However, as a precautionary measure, anyone who has any of the products listed below should not use them as there are uncertainties surrounding their production.

While these products should no longer be on sale, this cannot be guaranteed, and people may still have some in their homes. The Agency has been liaising with food supplement importers, trade associations and local authorities to get the most up-to-date and accurate information on these products. Details are given below.
