The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has updated the alert it issued in May advising clinicians to avoid the use of all sizes and batches of Provive and Sandoz propofol 1% products.

It said, however, that eight cases of Ralstonia bacteraemia have now been confirmed in patients who had received propofol 1% injection since 1 April 2014.
