Wyeth-Ayerst Pharmaceutical became aware that 5 cartons (each containing 80 multidose vials) of HibTITER Haemophilus b Conjugate Vaccine, Lot 613803A, were shipped inappropriately, in that the product was shipped by airfreight without a documented freeze indicator.

The firm is not recommending revaccination of children who have previously received vaccine from Lot 613803A.
