ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

An Asheville pharmacy is having a recall of all of its sterile compounded products from their facility.

Nature's Pharmacy and Compounding Center declared the voluntary recall on Monday on all sterile compounded products distributed at the store at 752 Biltmore Ave. in Asheville.

A statement on the pharmacy's site said:

"In the event a sterile product is compromised patients are at risk for very serious infections. To date, Nature's Pharmacy has received no reports of injury or illness associated with the use of its sterile products. However, out of the abundance of caution and in the interest of the pharmacy's patients, Nature's Pharmacy has decided to voluntarily proceed with this recall process and to cease production of sterile products. If you have any in-date product remaining please drop it by, mail it in or call to arrange a pick up. Clinic should contact any patient that has received treatment using any of these sterile products. Advise them to contact the FDA MedWatch 1-800-FDA-1088 to report any adverse drug reactions due to these products. Please call us with any concerns."
