Perrigo recalls 11 million bottles of pain killer

By Lisa Richwine

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Generic drugmaker Perrigo Co. is recalling 11 million bottles of over-the-counter pain killer acetaminophen caplets after finding metal fragments in some batches, U.S. health officials said on Thursday.

The 500-milligram pills sold as store brands may have been sent to dozens of outlets around the United States, including some owned by Wal-Mart, Safeway, CVS and Food Lion, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said.

The stores can be found at www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/perrigo/p ... tlist.html , while the batch numbers are online at www.fda.gov/oc/po/firmrecalls/perrigo/p ... hlist.html .

...snip



and if yes, then check your bottle's lot number to see if it also matches... if yes... then take it back to your store for a refund...

obtw, Tylenol is not affected by this recall, so....
