Large Quantity of Common Pain Killer Being Withdrawn from Market

 

Several million bottles of a popular pain reliever are being recalled by the manufacturer due to metal fragments being found inside the medicine.

The Perrigo Co, a manufacturer of non-prescription drugs, found varying sizes of small pieces of metal inside about 200 tablets of acetaminophen during a quality control check.

The deliberate recall is rated a Class II. This means that the recalled product may cause a temporary health threat if ingested. Users may suffer from stomach discomfort and small cuts to the mouth and throat.

Nice up-to-date info. Prescription is spelled "pescription"; also the medication is not being withdrawn from the market, it is being recalled.

Other than that nice job on the news!

"The contaminated pills included metal fragments ranging in size from 'microdots' to portions of wire one-third of an inch long."

Scary!
