Woburn drug maker may stop making sterile injections

Making his first public appearance since last month’s recall, James Nahill, owner of ­Pallimed Solutions Inc., testified for more than two hours before the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy about three problems found earlier. They included production of a super-potent batch of painkillers last year that left two patients hospitalized.
