The TGA issues alerts to advise consumers, health professionals and industry about new safety information regarding therapeutic products.
An alert does not necessarily mean that a product is considered to be unsafe. Alerts may explain the outcome of an investigation including any recommended actions for consumers and health professionals or a change to the availability of a product, or may advise that counterfeit or illegal products have been detected in Australia.
Further information on how the TGA monitors and evaluates the safety of medicines and medical devices is available in the Safety information & education section.
