Warning over wrong Braille information on Sinepin capsules

  • Comment

The government’s medicines watchdog has warned that a batch of drugs capsules has been incorrectly labelled in Braille.

According to a medical device alert from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the Sinepin 50mg cartons, with the batch number 0901001, have an error in the Braille print on the front of the carton.

The Braille on the front of the carton states ‘Sinepin 25mg’ - which should actually read ‘Sinepin 50mg’.
Pharmacists have been asked to contact visually impaired customers to make them aware of the issue.
