More specifically, they said in the note that an out-of-specification for levalbuterol inhalation solution resulted in a voluntary recall of one batch from the US market in May 215. "However the investigation did not extend into other strengths of the product to determine the product's quality, safety and stability," the observation which is part of the Form 483 said.

In another observation, a failure related to a leakage was documented 35 times but no investigation was initiated to identify problems that may potentially affect the product safety and quality.

The observation further stated that a failure related to a leakage was documented 35 times and no investigations were taken place in the matter, which might have affected the product safety and quality.

Cipla's Indore unit has also been faulted for facility and equipment systems. The officials observed that aseptic processing areas were deficient regarding the system for monitoring environmental conditions.
