United States federal drug enforcement officials have contacted Israeli company Teva Pharmaceuticals - the maker of the powerful anesthetic Propofol - as part of their investigation into Michael Jackson's death.
A spokeswoman for Teva Pharmaceuticals says the Drug Enforcement Administration asked the company about a specific batch of the drug.
Teva voluntarily recalled two lots of propofol after investigators found
acterial contamination in some samples caused up to 40 patients in Florida, Arizona and Missouri to develop fevers and chills.
Teva spokeswoman Denise Bradley says the DEA asked about a different batch of the recalled drug.
Propofol is the generic version of Diprivan. The anesthetic normally used in hospitals was found in Jackson's home after his death June 25.
