Germany's ministry of health on Friday confirmed the recall of a locally produced version of heparin is believed to contain contaminated ingredients from China after dozens of patients suffered adverse reactions.
The drug, produced by RotexMedica GmbH, was pulled from the market Wednesday night.
No one taking the drug in Germany has died, and no other drug companies' products are involved.
Germany's Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices said it believes the complications suffered by the German patients are derived from possibly contaminated ingredients imported from China, the world's leading source of heparin.
A different brand of heparin produced in the United States has been linked to 19 deaths, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
A spokesman for RotexMedica said the company was working together with authorities to clear up the incident.
Authorities in Switzerland said they are also investigating heparin medication in their country as a precautionary measure to determine whether action would be necessary. So far there have been no reports of complications, the Swiss medical authority said.
