Syracue (WSYR-TV) – A considerable amount of time has passed with no sign of Maalox returning to store shelves. NewsChannel 9 reported
last summer that Novartis’ manufacturing facility in Lincoln, Neb., is undergoing upgrades and improvements to its processes and procedures.
In 2011, the Food and Drug Administration sent the company a warning letter citing several violations that had to do with its manufacturing practices.
In the meantime, Novartis is outsourcing production of some over-the-counter products like Excedrin, Lamisil, and Triaminic.
The company does not, however, have a timeline for when Maalox might return to the local pharmacy.
They say they hope to be selling the product again, “as soon as possible.” If you have a question for the Your Stories team, call (315) 446-9900 or email YourStories@9wsyr.com
