Some Interesting News...
Perigo Co., a pharmaceutical manufacturer that supplies Walmart, CVS, Safeway and over 120 other chains has announced a recall of 11 million bottles of acetaminophen that may contain particles of metal.
An Associated Press story posted on November 9, 2006, states:
The FDA did not know in which states the pills had been sold, but instead recommended that customers determine whether products they bought are being recalled by checking the store list on the FDA Web site and the batch list.
The batch numbers appear on the container's label.
Personally, I don't take store-brand acetaminophen because acetaminophen is not too effective a painkiller for me. If I am going to take acetaminophen, I prefer Tylenol Extra Strength Rapid Release Gels. I do take store-brand ibuprofen, though.
