I hope you've already heard about the Novartis recall announced January 9, because I just realized last night (as I was about to take a pain reliever) that I have four brand new bottles of one of their recalled products in my medicine cabinet.
"FDA officials warned Monday that some of Novartis' over-the-counter pills may have accidentally been packaged with powerful prescription painkillers made at the same facility. The opioid drugs are sold by Endo Pharmaceuticals as Percocet, Endocet, Opana and Zydone."
So, I want to make sure you are aware of the recall also...just in case.
The affected medicines are:
- Gas X
- No Doz
If you currently have any of the over-the-counter medications listed, you can check for the UPC code on the Affected Product List to find out if your lot has been affected.
