NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Department of Health is asking anyone who received some injectable medications from a Cleveland, Tennessee, pharmacy to not use the product and turn it in to the Health Department.

The department says the Tennessee Board of Pharmacy found issues that could affect safety and effectiveness of some materials produced by the pharmacy, Wellness Store Compounding Pharmacy.

Neither the Health Department nor the Pharmacy Board is aware of any patients being harmed, and the department says the medications were small in number and distribution was only to a limited area. Still the department said it wants to be cautious and asks anyone who received such medications to seek attention if any symptoms develop.
