FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 23, 2024 – Charleston, South Carolina, EPI Health, LLC (Novan) has filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 17, 2023. In connection with that filing, the company has ceased and shutdown all operations and terminated all its employees of all domestic US Sites. The EPI Health/Novan Trustee is initiating a voluntary recall of various within-expiry human drug products (Attachment 1) as a result of the closures and discontinuation of the post- marketing quality, regulatory and pharmacovigilance activities for these marketed products.
