**  Ukoniq (umbralisib): Drug Safety Communication – FDA Approval of Lymphoma Medicine is Withdrawn Due to Safety Concerns

TOPIC: Ukoniq (umbralisib): Drug Safety Communication – FDA Approval of Lymphoma Medicine is Withdrawn Due to Safety Concerns AUDIENCE: Oncology, Patient, Health Professional, Pharmacy   ISSUE: Due to safety concerns, the FDA has withdrawn its approval for the cancer medicine Ukoniq (umbralisib). Updated findings from the UNITY-CLL clinical trial continued to show a possible increased risk of death in patients receiving Ukoniq. As a result, the FDA determined the risks of treatment with Ukoniq outweigh its benefits. Based upon this determination, the drug’s manufacturer, TG Therapeutics, announced it was voluntarily withdrawing Ukoniq from the market for the approved uses in marginal zone lymphoma and follicular lymphoma. For more information about this alert, click on the red button “Read Alert” below. BACKGROUND: Ukoniq was approved to treat two specific types of lymphoma: marginal zone lymphoma and follicular lymphoma. RECOMMENDATIONS:  Health care professionals should stop prescribing Ukoniq and switch patients to alternative treatments. Inform patients currently taking Ukoniq of the increased risk of death seen in the clinical trial and advise them to stop taking the medicine. In limited circumstances in which a patient may be receiving benefit from Ukoniq, TG Therapeutics plans to make it available under expanded access. Patients should talk to your health care professionals about alternative treatments and stop taking Ukoniq. It is best to dispose of unused Ukoniq using a drug take-back location such as in a pharmacy, but if one is not available, you can dispose of Ukoniq in your household trash by doing the following: Mix the medicine with an unappealing substance such as dirt, cat litter, or used coffee grounds; do not crush them. Place the mixture in a container such as a sealed plastic bag. Throw away the container in your home trash. Delete all personal information on the prescription labels of empty medicine bottles or packaging, then throw away or recycle them. Health professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program: Complete and submit the report online. Download form or call 1-800-332-1088 to request a reporting form, then complete and return to the address on form, or submit by fax to 1-800-FDA-0178. [06/01/2022 - Drug Safety Communication - FDA]

** Rocky Hill, CT — Henkel Corporation (“Henkel”) is voluntarily recalling 180 bottles of its 4.2 ounce Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc), which poses little medical risk to healthy people, but can cause an increased risk for illness or infection in people who have certain health problems, such as weakened immune systems, chronic lung diseases, chronic granulomatous disease, or wound infections. Patients with underlying lung disease (especially cystic fibrosis) might be at increased risk for severe infections with Bcc.

The potential for product contamination was noted after testing performed by Henkel revealed the presence of Bcc in some 4.2 ounce bottles of Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray.

While Henkel has received no reports of harm or injury in connection with this product, the company is proactively recalling the product. If you have experienced any symptoms, or have any medical questions associated with this recall, please consult your physician immediately.

The Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray included in this recall comes in a 4.2 ounce, purple plastic spray bottle marked with lot # Y401427403 on the bottom, and was distributed nationwide through a distributor. The product was available for sale to the public no earlier than April 12, 2022.

Henkel is conducting this voluntary recall with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

As part of our commitment to our consumers, those who have purchased the applicable 4.2 ounce bottles of Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray described above are urged to return them to their place of purchase for a full refund. We seek to minimize all inconvenience this may cause consumers and are committed to their complete satisfaction. Consumers with questions about this recall may contact one of our dedicated customer specialists at 1-888-4ALTERNA (1-888- 425-8376) and Alterna.customerservice@henkel.com. This customer service line is operational Monday through Thursday from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PST, and Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. PST. On weekends and after working hours, an automated message system will direct callers how to reach a back-up call center. Consumers with medical questions should contact their physician.

** Walmart Inc. is voluntarily recalling all lots of Artri Ajo King Joint Supplements sold by Innovacion Naturals and PDX Supply Warehouse LLC on Walmart.com and shipped by Walmart to the consumer level. FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that Artri Ajo King Omega 3 Joint Support Supplement with LOTE LTARTKNGOMG30720, CADUCIDAD DICIEMBRE 2026, UPC 7 501031 111190 contains diclofenac not listed on the product label

Risk Statement:

Diclofenac is a non- steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly referred to as NSAIDs. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) may cause increased risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke, as well as serious gastrointestinal damage, including bleeding, ulceration, and fatal perforation of the stomach and intestines. This hidden drug ingredient may also interact with other medications and significantly increase the risk of adverse events, particularly when consumers use multiple NSAID- containing products.

These products are marketed as dietary supplements and used for treating arthritis, muscle pain, osteoporosis, bone cancer, and other conditions.

** Safeway Fresh Foods (dba Sunnyside Fresh) of Vineland New Jersey is issuing a voluntary Class 1 Recall of Quick Chek branded Apple and Peanut Butter Snack trays sold in New Jersey because the JIF peanut butter portion has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
