Are you storing your labels properly?

A company recently received this 483 observation:

….. Labels and other labeling materials are not stored separately with suitable identification for each different drug product, strength, dosage form or quantity of contents.

Specifically, your label room is not setup in a manner to prevent mix-ups.  Similar labels may be stored next to each other.  Outdated labeling is stored immediately adjacent to current labels.  Labels appear to be stored wherever space is available and storage locations are not identified for each different drug product.

For more observations pertaining to packaging and labeling see Issue 1037 available today.  It also has observations pertaining to manufacturing controls, laboratory controls and medical device manufacturers.
