With reference to the recall on 28 April 2003 of products manufactured by Pan Pharmaceuticals: For each of the 62 serious adverse events occurring in individuals who consumed products for which Pan Pharmaceuticals was an approved manufacturer and that were reported in the 12 months prior to the Pan Pharmaceuticals recall, can the Adverse Drug Reactions Advisory Committee provide a copy of the individual printout from their database; if not, why not.

Senator Patterson (Minister for Family and Community Services and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women’s Issues) —The Minister for Health and Ageing has provided the following answer to the honourable senator’s question:

Computer generated records of the 62 individual reports are available from the Senate Table Office. These records do not include confidential information or personal identifiers and are described as “public case details”.

Many of the reports contain an age of “2002” or date of birth of “01/01/0001”. These are the default entries for these fields for when the information was not provided by the reporter.
