11 Million Bottles of Store Brand Pain Reliever Recalled

This is what I heard on WCBS radio this morning:

Perrigo Co., a major manufacturer of store-brand acetaminophen, recalled 11 million bottles of the pain-relieving pills Thursday after discovering some were contaminated with metal fragments. The recall affects bottles containing various amounts of 500-milligram caplets. Perrigo bills itself as the world’s largest manufacturer of store-brand nonprescription drugs. However, Wal-Mart Stores Inc., CVS Corp., Walgreen Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp. are among the companies it supplies with health care products.

If you have purchased any pain relief medicine from these stores recently, you may want to check with them see your product has been recalled. So far, however, there’s no injuries or illness reported due to the contamination.
