A notice recently given to the Ministry of Health stated that a shipment of drugs that had bene transferred by the distribution company Novolog to a number of pharmacies in the Hadera and Pardes Hanna region had frozen.
The drugs were delivered to pharmacies on May 26-31. Frozen drugs have impaired effectiveness, so patients who have bought them must take them back to the pharmacies for a replacement.

At present, the healthcare organizations and Novolog Company are acting to track down and update the patients. The list of pharmacies, names of drugs and the batches dispensed on the dates above follows:
