The fentanyl warning is just about safe use to prevent accidental exposure, especially in children.
A lot of morphine was recalled for injecting too much.  Lot #10830LL Carpuject Syringe System.

I would think this would only effect those who inject with a syringe into their pain pump or dosing in a hospital setting.

But yes...a link to the FDA site would be good..It's always good for us to stay alert of any type of recalls.

Thanks Alcie for sharing this with us just in case.

I'm glad there's no danger of a child getting a hold of my fentanyl patch. I'll try my best to remember if a child comes to our apartment.

Take care everyone.

love and hugs
