Voluntary #Recall of One Lot of #Gardasil HPV Vaccine | Media Statement | #CDC Online Newsroom

On December 16, 2013 CDC was informed by Merck that the company planned to implement a voluntary recall of one lot (lot J007354) of Gardasil® [Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant], due to the potential for a small number of vials to contain #glass #particles as a result of breakage during the manufacturing process. There were 743,360 #vials in the affected lot. Merck estimates that approximately ten of those vials could have glass particles in them. Vaccines from the affected lot were distributed between August 20, 2013, and October 9, 2013. No other lots are affected.
