Product Mixup Leads to Recall of Enteric Coated Aspirin Bottles
A potential mixup in the product contained within the bottle has led to a recall from the Holtsville, New York-based Advance Pharmaceutical. Bottles of Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets 81 mg under the Rugby label from Lot 13A026 and with an expiration date of January 2015 might in fact contain 500 mg tablets of acetaminophen. Because of this, persons might incur liver damage if they have a pre-existing liver condition, consume other acetaminophen-based products, or drink multiple alcoholic beverages. If someone follows the administration directions on the label, they could end up consuming a level of acetaminophen that’s six times higher than the upper limit of what’s generally thought of as safe. A complaint revealed the mixup, and owners should bring the bottles back without consuming the tablets.
