Thanks for posting that Dowa.
Here's a little more info from the same website;
"June 1, 2010 — The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning healthcare professionals not to use intravenous versions of metronidazole, ciprofloxacin, and ondansetron manufactured by Claris Lifesciences after receiving reports of 2 contaminated intravenous bags.

The medications in question are sold under the labels of Claris, Sagent Pharmaceuticals, Pfizer, and West-Ward Pharmaceuticals. Claris is recalling all lots of these products.

Ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are antibiotics; ondansetron is an antiemetic used to combat nausea and vomiting associated with surgery or chemotherapy."
