What Is a Market Withdrawal?

A market withdrawal is different than a product recall.

According to the Food and Drug Administration:

Market withdrawal: occurs when a product has a minor violation that would not be subject to FDA legal action.

The firm removes the product from the market or corrects the violation.

For example, a product removed from the market due to tampering, without evidence of manufacturing or distribution problems, would be a market withdrawal.

There is no determination at this time for the reason for this action. Nor to verify the authenticity of the posted noticed.

For this reason, no further information is available at this time.
