The Swissmedic has been informed by the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency ANVISA that Brazil has suspended all imports of medicinal products from three Turkish wholesalers. The reason for this is the export of falsified units from Turkey to Brazil. One of the batches was also obtained from Turkey and sold to Brazil by a Swiss wholesaler.
In this regard, an information for Swiss companies was published. The Swissmedic points out that Swiss companies are also not permitted to supply medications obtained from the Turkish wholesalers to Brazil.
The names of the three wholesalers and further information can be found on the website of Swissmedic.
