Notice Regarding Consent Decree against Downing Labs

January 19, 2016

On Friday, January 8, 2016, U.S. District Judge Sam A. Lindsay entered a consent decree of permanent injunction between the United States and Downing Labs LLC, of Dallas, Texas, and the company’s co-owners, Ashley Michelle Downing and Christopher Van Downing, and pharmacist-in-charge, Roger E. Mansfield.

According to the complaint filed with the consent decree, Downing Labs (formerly known as NuVision Pharmacy) manufactured and distributed purportedly sterile drug products that were adulterated because the drugs were made under insanitary conditions and in violation of current good manufacturing practice requirements under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act).
