Return Policy

Missing Items & Damaged Shipments

It is our goal that customers receive all orders intact, correctly, and on time. Please inspect your order as soon as you receive it and immediately contact Customer Service at 800.239.5288 with any issues.

  • Any incomplete or missing items in the order must be reported to Fagron Customer Service within two business days of receipt for further investigation.
  • Goods damaged in shipment must be reported to the freight carrier by the customer within 2 business days of receipt. Do not accept a damaged shipment until the carrier makes a damage notation on the delivery paperwork. Please take any photographs of the items and how they were packaged and received. Please retain packaging and preserve in the state in which it arrived to you in the event the freight carrier orders an inspection.

Obtaining A Return Authorization

Contact Customer Service at (800) 423 6967 for a Return Authorization Number for any items you wish to return for credit, including recalls.  To ensure proper processing, you must supply all pertinent item numbers, invoice numbers, lot numbers and expiration dates.  Return Authorization Number must be clearly written on the outside of the shipment.  Returns without a Return Authorization Number will not be credited.  Returns not due to our error may be shipped by your carrier of choice.  Your carrier of choice must be able to bill you directly for the shipping expense.  A return authorization label does not provide prepaid freight unless the return is a result of our error.  Returns for Schedule II narcotics require a special authorization and can be obtained by speaking to our regulatory department at 800.239.5288.  Any unauthorized return of a controlled substance will be reported to the DEA and no credit will be given.
